A BUSINESSWOMAN raised a few eyebrows on Friday (November 18) when she turned up to a series of meetings in her pyjamas.

Katrina Travis, from First 4 Uniform, in North Road, Lancing, bravely donned her nightwear to raise £150 for Children in Need.

During the course of the day, Katrina attended a meeting for Worthing and Adur Chamber, met with staff at Worthing High School, and served customers in her shop.

Katrina, 38, said of the chamber meeting: “I turned up in pyjamas and James Appleton, head of planning for Adur and Worthing councils, was the speaker.

“A couple of people looked and you could see they did not want to say anything.

“One lady asked me if I had run out of time to get dressed and I said it was either hair and make-up or clothes.”

In the evening, Katrina went with her pyjama-clad friend Mel Cole, Mel’s daughter Abigail, and friend Sophie Mann, to the BBC Children in Need show in London.

She said: “It was brilliant, absolutely fantastic. Most of the stars, even when they were doing the bits in between, stayed on stage and chatted. When we went up on the train it was a bit weird being in pyjamas but by the time we were coming home we had got used to it.”

Katrina was not the only one who raised money on Friday, with Abigail raising more than £60 from a cake sale held at the Sir Robert Woodard Academy.
