CHARITY shops in the Portsmouth area were granted a licence to fundraise when a James Bond theme was organised to raise cash for a children’s hospice.

Naomi House has charity stores across the county and each of them, including the shop in High Street, Cosham, took part in the quirky fundraiser.

Staff from bank HSBC took over from volunteers to help with the day’s events.

Entertainment included a brass band, face painting and a raffle and tombola.

And there was also a performance from a choir from The Victory Primary School, in Allaway Avenue, Paulsgrove.

People also got a chance to pose with famous bond car the Jaguar DB9.

Store manager Lynne Morgan said: ‘We took more than double what we would normally take in a day, the support was brilliant.’

Naomi House helps children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. It is based in Winchester and helps families from all over Hampshire.
