Lisa volunteered for the gooey challenge to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Trust in support of her partner, Jon Makin, who is a manager at Tesco, in Cullumpton.

Jon, who is doing a Bear Grylls-style survival weekend for MS Trust, had asked that stores in the local area come up with different ways to help him raise £3,000.

A spokesman for the store said: “Lisa’s slimy stunt raised a huge £455 and was a huge hit with our customers and colleagues, some team members paying £10 a time to pour buckets of slime over their store manager!

“We would like to thank the kind customers who gave so generously for this great cause.”

Donations to Jon’s survival weekend can be made at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/J-MAKIN1
