Man to live in shop window for a week

YkidsA youth worker is to spend a week on his own in a shop to help raise money for Bootle-based children’s charity Ykids.

Paul Melia will live in a shop window in the Bootle Strand to try and raise money and awareness for the charity.

His Big Brother style stunt will be streamed live on the internet so that people can see what he gets up to.

And that includes trying to break some 50 “daft” world records such as wearing a one-metre high hat made of shaving foam.

“In this tough climate we need to do everything we can to raise funds,” said Claire Morgans who founded the charity to help benefit the lives of children and young people in deprived areas of Bootle and South Sefton in Merseyside.

“This is a really innovative way of doing it – and it’s great fun too,” she said.

Paul starts his week-long event on November 19.
