If you were wondering why the windows of Wenlock Flowers were blacked out in the run up to Red Nose Day – all has been revealed!

Joanne Barker and Helen Healey from Wenlock Flowers came up with the idea of ‘baring all’ after a few glasses of wine as a way to raise cash for good causes. As Joanne told What’s What: “We don’t mind sending ourselves up for a laugh and once we got a few sponsors there was no chance to back out!”

Photography both of whom donated their services for free.”
