Cafe Noglish, in Wide Bargate, is inviting customers to take a selfie with their 9ft-tall gonk in exchange for a small donation.
Boston Borough Council leader Coun Paul Skinner is one of those to have a snap taken with the bearded gonk and to leave a donation, adding “It’s brilliant that the cafe have taken this initiative.”
The stuffed gnome-like figure was created by Sonya Chapman, from Boston, who runs her own crafting business ‘Sew Bee It’.
