Munching for charity

A worker at Avondale Foods in Lurgan spent four hours eating his favourite coleslaw.

But it was all in a good cause as he raised £500 for Comic Relief in 1989.

Beginning at 1pm Steven Rea munched his way through a huge quantity of his favourite salad until 5pm that evening.

“I could have continued eating coleslaw for another four hours easily and still not have tired of it,” said Steven.

Steven was given the dubious distinction of being known amongst his colleagues as Avondale as the ‘Coleslaw Kid.’
