A Norfolk author who gets ideas from customers at the supermarket check-out where he works has raised more than £400 for the Marie Curie charity, which supports people living with any terminal illness, and their families.
Paul Starling, author and check-out team support at Tesco Stalham, has just released his sixth book, An Amazing Autobiography, and donated £1 from each copy sold at a book-signing at the store. He also completed a 100-mile exercise bike ride in–store.
The 46-year-old, who has worked for Tesco for 15 years, said: 'I am delighted to be able to donate to this fantastic charity and will be launching my next book in July this year.'
One of his previous books, Cause and Effect, which was released in 2013, was a thriller novel hatched in the supermarket.
The plot was sparked by customers' comments, and various ideas he had been mulling over while checking out groceries.
