Shoppers in Market Harborough had the ‘Greatest Day’ on Saturday 3 August, when a Take That tribute band performed outside the store, helping to raise £500 for a local children’s hospice.
Stars in their eyes
Take@That wowed the crowds outside Specsavers in Market Harborough, performing some of the boy band’s greatest hits, including ‘Back for Good’, ‘Never Forget’ and ‘A Million Love Songs’.
The tribute act helped the store to raise £500 for Rainbow’s Children Hospice and tied in with the launch of the store’s new Gary Barlow specs collection from Osiris Eyewear.
‘We still can’t get over the brilliance of Take@That,’ said Barry Henning, store director at Specsavers Market Harborough. ‘The performance was incredible and created a great atmosphere in the town, with people singing and dancing along. We can’t thank them enough. We’d also like to thank all those who donated. The hospice relies on donations to fund the care it provides to children, so it’s great that we’ve been able to raise another £500 following our Space Day fundraiser the weekend before when we raised a similar amount.’
Rainbows is the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, where life-limited children and their families can find care and support. Its team helps relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, care for children at the end of life and support parents and siblings through their bereavement.
