DECKED head to toe in pink, dedicated fundraiser David Quainton has collected £600 for breast cancer.

The 56-year-old, of Parham Road, Gosport, dyed his hair and eyebrows pink in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. He also put on pink fishnet tights, a skirt, knee-high boots, and accessories for the charity and went to work in his head-turning outfit.

David, who works at engineering firm Good Directions, in Botley, said: ‘I’ve never done anything like this in my whole life and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it went. At first when they asked me to dress as a woman I said no, but it was so much fun. I got a great reaction from everyone and raised much more than I thought I would, which was brilliant.

‘It’s given me the bug to do more now.’
