BIGGAR restaurant boss Abed Ullah quite literally ‘dragged’ himself into raising cash for Cancer Research!

For the Taj Mahal supremo donned a dress and make-up as he supported a Facebook ‘selfie’ campaign in which male participants had to post pictures of themselves wearing traditionally female beauty products.

“It was a good laugh,” Abed said.

“A lot of people thought I was in my element because of the way I was carrying on.

“I thoroughly enjoyed it and I was delighted to support a good cause.”

Abed appeared in drag for a 10-hour shift as a waiter at the High Street restaurant, much to the amusement and occasional astonishment of customers.

“I had to put a sign up outside to say why I was dressed like a woman,” he said.

“I was getting weird looks to start off with but I found it good fun dressing up.

“I was delighted to support a good cause.”

Abed raises £223 in the name of the Breast Cancer Awareness Facebook campaign.
