JUSTIN Bieber is up for grabs at Stretford Mall.


Although perhaps to the disappointment of his many fans, it is only a life-size cardboard cut-out of the Canadian pop sensation that is on offer at the Frangrance Shop.


Beliebers can walk away with the 5ft 7in cut out for just £1, as it is being raffled off in aid of Rays of Sunshine, The Fragrance Shop’s chosen children’s charity.


Bieber launched his own fragrance recently and each branch of The Fragrance Shop the cut-out of the 20-year-old superstar to help promote the perfume.


But rather than throw it away, Nichola Derrick, the enterprising manager at the Stretford Mall store, decided to do something more constructive.


Nichola said: “We get the same sort of figures when other stars launch their own-name fragrances and when the promotional period is over we usually just take them off display and dispose of them.


“But on this occasion the Justin figure was so popular with our customers that I reckoned we could do something a bit more useful with it.”


Colin McCrory, Stretford Mall Manager, said: “I think this is a brilliant idea of Nichola’s and I feel sure there will be lots of Stretford Justin Bieber fans who are keen to enter the raffle.


“I am sure they would be horrified to think Justin would otherwise be consigned to the dustbin.


“It is nice to think that some of his local young fans will also be helping other children who are facing the worse possible circumstances.”
