Thetford’s crier Mike Wabe helped the town’s Specsavers store in Riverside Walk as its staff became pretty in pink for their fundraising event on June 18, which raised £450 for the cancer charity.
Despite the inclement weather the staff held their ground outside the store, selling homemade pink cupcakes and Breast Cancer awareness pins.
They also held a raffle in the run up to the event, with 27 prize donations from staff and local businesses.
Paul Clark, store director of Specsavers in Thetford, said: “We really enjoyed seeing customers old and new come together to support such a wonderful cause.
