Specs-wearing kids can channel their inner Avenger or Princess with the latest collection of Marvel Avengers and Disney Princesses glasses at Specsavers in Daventry. 

To mark the launch of the new range, the team hosted a fundraising day on Saturday 31 March and raised more than £280 for When you Wish Upon a Star, a charity that grants wishes to children living with life threatening illnesses.

Staff raided their wardrobes to come to work dressed up as Disney and Marvel characters. Customers and passers-by were invited to sample sweet treats in return for charitable donations and there was an Avengers themed pick-up truck outside the store.
