Disney princesses, a raffle and balloon modelling galore were just some of the activities enjoyed by visitors to Specsavers in Belper, raising £230 for Comic Relief.

The team pulled out all the stops, starting with the three staff members greeting customers outside the store dressed as Snow White, Red Riding Hood, and the mysterious ‘Pink Princess’.

Fantastic Family Activities

‘We wanted to go all out for Comic Relief, and the day was certainly a success,’ said store director Andy McBride. ‘We put on some fantastic activities for family fun, while raising vital funds for Comic Relief.

'It’s something that we all really care about, and the team and community really got behind the day, making a grand total of £230 for the charity.’

Once greeted by the Princesses, younger visitors got involved in some clever balloon modelling and enjoyed take away goodie bags containing toy bugs, pens, sweets, balloons and magazines.


Tickets were sold on the day for a raffle of the store’s life-size cut out of Kylie Minogue, and the lucky winner of the pop princess announced on Red Nose Day.

Customers also got involved in the celebrations by purchasing a pair of bright red ‘Give Us a Wave’ Comic Relief specs from the store for a donation of £2. The store encouraged customers to take selfies using #GiveUsAWave to raise awareness on social media.
