St Ives residents were given a magical surprise when the local Specsavers was transformed into a scene from a Disney ® film for a day.

Raising vital funds

Staff spent a day in the shoes of their favourite Disney® characters to raise vital funds for The Brain Tumour Charity.

As well as the Disney® outfits, customers were presented with Disney®-themed cupcakes for sale along with a ‘guess the number of sweets’ competition, with two designer eyewear vouchers up for grabs.

Interact with the locals

Store Director Sandip Patel, says: ‘We all really enjoyed the day. It was a great opportunity for us to have some fun and interact with the locals while also raising money and awareness for a great cause. What’s more, everyone loves Disney® and it’s not every day you get the opportunity to spend a day at work dressed like your favourite Disney® character, in my case Robin Hood!

Aware of the charity

‘It was great to see the local residents supporting us in raising £100 for The Brain Tumour charity. Hopefully there will be a few more people aware of the charity and the amazing work it does than there were before.’

Brain tumour charity

The Brain Tumour Charity is the UK’s largest dedicated brain tumour charity, committed to fighting brain tumours on all fronts, funding scientific and clinical research into brain tumours and offering support and information to those affected.
