Helston’s Fairy Godmother took a break from performing at the Epworth Hall to join the Mayor in support of Helston Specsavers first anniversary and their fundraising efforts in aid of Children’s Hospice South West.

Thanks to local business support

Led by optical assistant Victoria Flinders, the locally owned Specsavers store teamed up with Specsavers Falmouth to source prizes for a raffle, raising over £400. 

Dreams come tue

The Fairy Godmother from Helston’s recent pantomime production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs joined Helston’s Mayor Councillor Gillian Geer to draw the winners on the Helston store’s first anniversary.

Raffle prizes included hair products, sports equipment, cuddly toys, gardening equipment and a children’s Kindle fire.

A welcoming community

Paul McGrane, Helston and Falmouth Specsavers store director, says: ‘It’s been a fantastic first year in Helston. Everyone has been very welcoming and we’ve all enjoyed being part of the town’s close knit community. We’re looking forward to the year ahead.

‘On behalf of Victoria and all the businesses that helped contribute to the Children’s Hospice South West raffle and to everyone that bought a ticket, I’d like to say thank you. You have supported a wonderful cause. Finally to all the winners, congratulations!’
