'Face of Wellingborough Boots', Jane Holloway is back

A Wellingborough woman who had been made redundant from her beloved retail job is now back doing the job she loves.

Jane Holloway, 41, who lives with Down's Syndrome, had landed her dream job at Boots more than 18 years ago after a work experience stint at the Swansgate store.

Working in a customer-facing role, Jane had become a well-known character behind the counters in the town centre shop, so much so she was recognised abroad by customers on their travels.
