YOUNGSTERS will have the chance to be pictured with a life-size version of Mickey Mouse this weekend.

The Disney character promises to add a bit of glamour to Portsmouth and Southsea Rotary Club’s fundraising efforts for local charities at the Farlington Sainsbury’s branch today and tomorrow from 9am until 5pm.

Tony Palmer, the club’s president elect, said: ‘The Mickey Mouse outfit is superb and I’m sure lots of children would love to be photographed with him.’

The club is collecting for local charities and in particular The Rowans Hospice in Purbrook and Naomi House hospice in Winchester.
