A MORPETH charity worker will certainly stand out from the crowd in her latest fund-raising scheme.

For Claire Devine, who is a Volunteering Consultant at Guide Dogs, has teamed up with colleagues to form a new hi-viz charity pop group, Bandage.

The team, comprising Ms Devine, Andrew Leon, Pippa Turner, Mike Dooley, Catherine Parry and Liz McAlpine, has recorded a song to raise funds during Guide Dog Week, which starts on Saturday.

Ms Devine said: “The theme of Guide Dog Week this year is Stand Out for Guide Dogs. We decided that we would embrace the tradition of charity songs and have some fun as we stand out.

“It helps that we are all wearing hi-viz jackets and luminous wigs.”
