Tiaras for Chiara in Salisbury
Specsavers Salisbury turned itself into a perfect princess kingdom to raise money for children’s charity Julia’s House.
A brave new look
Staff from Specsavers, located on Catherine Street, donned their grandest tiaras and invited children in store to have their faces painted to encourage donations for the charity. As well as this, staff member Faye Gibbons braved a new look by having her head shaved on the day.
The day, named ‘Tiaras for Chiara’, was held in memory of local girl Chiara Campari-Moss, who passed away last year due to a brain tumour. Paola Campari-Moss, Chiara’s mother and Ambassador of Julia’s House, said: ‘Chiara received nursing support at home from the Julia’s House team during her illness and Ariana her sister has ongoing support from their therapy team.
‘We are really touched that Chiara lives on in so many people's memories and would like to thank Specsavers for dedicating a fundraiser to her memory. She was indeed a princess and always will be.’
Supporting Julia's House
Friend of Paola and store director of Specsavers Salisbury, Anna Dailey says: ‘Paola has been tirelessly raising awareness of the work Julia’s House does and has raised a significant amount of money, so we were keen to follow her example. Chiara was a wonderful little girl and we're thankful to everyone who wore a tiara for her and donated towards a worthwhile cause.’
