Knights in shining armour and medieval characters took over Tesco Extra, Wisbech at the weekend to raise money for charity.
Phoenix Medieval Re-enactment visited the store on Saturday to spread the message about their weekend-long fundraising event next month.
“It went really well,” said group leader Graham Wyatt. “We were there to promote a show that we’re putting on in June and we also raised £40 to go towards our charity causes.
“This year we’re raising funds for the intensive care unit and children’s hospice at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn.
“Everything we raise gets put in a charity pot and is split later in the year.
