Market manager Duncan Mallett is a hit with the ladies of the council’s south Yarmouth office as he immodestly succumbs to a bribe to raise more money for Comic Relief.

COMIC Relief asks for zany ideas to raise money for charity so providing healthy lunches may sound a little sane - until you see the delivery man wearing little more than a pinny and a winning smile.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council's market manager Duncan Mallett delivered some of the 140 lunches provided by him and his partner Jo naked - in response to a bribe.

The couple created Fit For Business lunch boxes which were distributed to offices around the borough. Contents included smoked salmon and cream cheese and watercress fillings in rolls baked at their own home.

The challenge for an extra donation for Comic Relief came from the South Yarmouth office, if Duncan delivered the lunch boxes naked - which he did with a little help from a pinafore in the name of modesty.

Manager George Devon said: “I haven't seen an Englishman with that lack of coverage since Scotland beat the then world champions England in 1967!”

Duncan and Jo have been providing morish food for Comic Relief for council staff for several years with unusually flavoured savoury muffins being a favourite in the past.

This year's lunch boxes had ingredients supplied by ASDA which helped boost the final total of £750.
