Life in the struggling Greenchange charity shop is looking bleak for the staff as Head Office declare that they are dissatisfied with the shop’s performance. Unless things improve, it could be curtains!
A photographic competition advertised in The Daily News could save the day. So, facing their own insecurities, the boys prepare for the challenges of the photo shoot where each entrant from each charity is to be photographed in their natural environment in the 'nuddy'!
Will the boys overcome their fears? Will Head Office close the shop down before the winners of the competition are announced? Will Doris sabotage the whole thing, or could Harry Potter save the day!
