Editor Barry Hunt is to go back to the shop floor as a newspaper boy to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
It follows a challenge by the cancer charity for business people across the country to go back to basics and collect sponsorship money for doing so.
Barry hopes to raise more than £500, which could be then be doubled by Archant’s match-funding scheme.
Barry said: “We have often highlighted the good work of Marie Curie nurses, so I thought it was about time I did something to support them.
“I have already received lots of support from friends and workmates and I would urge other bosses to join in too.”
Barry has a lot to live up to, as regular papergirl Kirsty knows the names of all the cats and dogs on her round.
She told him: “Watch out for the dogs! There are a lot of them on my round, and there are lots of steps and long driveways too.”
