MIDDLEWICH business women go ‘bearfaced’ to raise funds for BBC Children in Need.

Bare Bones Marketing, in Croxton Lane, collaborated with other women from local businesses to hold a ‘Go BearFaced for BBC Children in Need.’ event in Crewe.

Businesswomen were invited to embrace their natural beauty and go bare-faced wearing nothing but a Pudsey paw print on their faces for the day at the Cloverleaf Images Photography Studios.

Emma Dalzell, owner of Bare Bones Marketing said: “With a name like ‘Bare Bones Marketing’ we just had to get involved in the Go BearFaced campaign!

“Like many women, being barefaced for the day was a little bit scary, especially as there is photographic evidence, but it was worth to raise nearly £150 through ‘mydonate’ page alone! Thank you to everyone who donated and supported the day.”

The ladies raised £215 in total for the nationwide campaign with women being encouraged to ditch their make up and go barefaced for the day all in aid of a fantastic cause.

Celebrities that took part in the campaign included Alex Jones from The One Show, singer Kimberley Walsh and Arlene Phillips.

Johnathan Clover, owner of Cloverleaf images said:  “I wanted to do something to support the Go BearFaced day and photographers all around the country were taking part.

“The Cloverleaf studios are perfect for capturing images of BearFaced business women and there was plenty of room for networking at the studios too.

"It was a great way to mix business and fundraising and we got some great shots!”
