David Spade turns shop worker for charity

Comedian DAVID SPADE thrilled shoppers at a supermarket in Los Angeles on Wednesday (03Jul13) when he spent the day bagging up groceries and entertaining the crowds across the Tannoy to raise money for charity.

The Rules of Engagement funnyman donned a staff name tag for his appearance at the Kmart branch as he joked around behind the cash tills to earn funds for the March Of Dimes organisation.

Spade shot an important scene his new movie Grown Ups 2 in the supermarket and returned to the Mid-City West store for the promotional appearance to earn a $10,000 (£6,451) charity donation from Kmart bosses.

Speaking before the event Spade said, "This event for Kmart is tied in for Grown Ups 2. I get to be a cashier for a day, which will be a lot of fun. We did a big scene in the movie in Kmart. With all the guys and it was a lot of fun for us so it sort of made sense to come here and we all shop here let's be honest, so it made sense.

"They in turn are donating to the March of Dimes. They get $10,000 when I go down there and cashier it up (sic). It's fun for everybody and it benefits in a nice way. We have a goofy way to have fun together."

March Of Dimes aims to improve the health of expectant mothers and premature babies.
