Children can win some fantastic prizes at the tombola!

On Saturday 6 August, Specsavers in West Bridgford is hosting a tombola in store to raise money for their nominated charity, Help for Heroes.

Fun filled day of festivities

The store on Central Avenue will be selling tickets to customers and passers-by, with the lucky winners receiving prizes donated by local businesses. Hero the bear will be making guest appearances at various times throughout the day to entertain children. Staff will also be getting into the spirit of the day by dressing up as children’s Disney characters, including Princess Jasmine, Cruella de Vil and Anna from Frozen.

Businesses in the local area have donated some fantastic prizes, which include a mid-week tobogganing session for two at the Snowdome, paintballing at Adrenaline Jungle and tickets for the Theatre Royal in Nottingham. There will also be a children’s tombola, with prizes including Minions toys, chocolate and activity kits.

Tickets will be available to purchase from staff at the store and cost 50p or three for £1, with all proceeds going to Help for Heroes.

‘We’re looking forward to dressing up and getting involved with our charity tombola,’ says store director Stephen Rogers. ‘After a customer vote to choose a charity at the start of the year, all the money from our fundraising will be donated to Help for Heroes. We’re hoping that customers and the local community come along and be in with the chance of winning one of our fantastic prizes!’
