A CROSS-DRESSING football match on Sunday with men in frocks brought the total raised for Comic Relief by Sainsbury's in Huntingdon to �22,000.
The score was four-one and as the managers' team hit the balls into the net, they raised the final �100 of a weeks-long fundraising effort.
The store raised �11,000 with a range of activities including a raffle and leg-waxing in store. Then it raised another �11,000 by selling red noses and t-shirts.
Store spokesman, Karen Pritchard told The Hunts Post: "We want to thank the community and all the schools who took part and helped us raise this huge amount of money."
At Sunday's football match, at Riverside Park in Huntingdon, extra money was raised with family fun including facepainting, a tombola, a bouncy castle and refreshments on sale.
Mrs Pritchard said: "It was a great event. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us for comic relief."
