Specsavers in Belper is thanking the local community for their generosity in helping to raise £417 during its recent Star Wars themed Macmillan coffee morning.
Visitors were greeted by Darth Vader and his Storm Troopers, kindly provided by UK Garrison 501st Legion; the UK’s foremost accredited Star Wars costuming group based locally in Derbyshire. The store was also transformed with a Star Wars theme for the annual fundraising event.
A word from the store director
‘We were very excited to welcome locals into store to meet the characters and enjoy a slice of cake,’ said store director, Andy McBride. ‘We take part in the Macmillan coffee morning event every year, and have raised more than £2,000 in the last three years.’
