Visitors to Harborough on Saturday could have been forgiven for thinking they had stepped back in time as they were greeted by 1920s-style gangsters and treated to jazz sounds.
The fun event was organised by Specsavers at St Mary’s Place, Harborough, to help celebrate the store’s 11th anniversary.
Staff toting Tommy guns lined up alongside 1920s-style molls and a period car was brought in to add to the spectacle.
The day saw the team raise £450 for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.
Harborough store director Barry Henning said: “It was a fantastic day.
“The team all made such an effort, the car pulled in the crowds for photos and the band – the Retrosettes – were amazing.
“It’s great that we raised such a significant amount for our nominated charity and a big thank you to all those who supported us.”
The store is continuing its fundraising efforts by running a raffle with the chance of winning a free haircut at Toni & Guy, a £25 voucher for a meal at Timo Italian restaurant in Harborough, plus other prizes and goodie bags.
Tickets are available from its store. For tickets or to make a donation, visit the store, call 01858 438980, or visit www.specsavers.com/market harborough.
