A PREGNANT woman helped her sister to raise over £100 for Comic Relief last week. Donations poured in for Denise Burges, a face painter at Pecorama, who used her eight month pregnant sister's tum as a canvass. She painted a Mount Kilimanjaro theme 'Bump art' on the mum-to-be, Jooles Vandervlist, which was inspired by the nine celebrities who climbed the mountain for Comic Relief two weeks ago. Denise thanked everyone for the support with her latest 'Bump art' creation. She said: "Thank you to everyone who had sponsored myself and my sister's bump. We have made well over £100 and Bump art group have made so far £927 for Comic Relief with still a lot of ladies yet to paint.
