Heath Stores in Horsmonden raises cash for Comic Relief by recreating film scenes in shop

Shoppers and staff have been dressing up and channelling their inner showman as part of their efforts to raise cash for Comic Relief.

Kate Mills, owner of Heath Stores, in Horsmonden, and store manager Ross Barker came up with the idea of seven days of different shows to try and collect £1,000 for charity.

Tomorrow's performance of the Lion King will be their final act in a week that has seen them perform Grease, the Greatest Showman and High School Musical.

Today they gave their own rendition of hit musical Mamma Mia ahead of the curtain closer tomorrow.

Ross said: "It was mine and Kate's idea jointly.

"We went around to other farm shops to see what they did and asked what we could do differently. We decided that every day we would dress up and record a video of us doing a different show.

"We have raised £600 so far and our aim is to raise £1,000 by the end of tomorrow."

Andrew Lloyd Webber Day took place on Wednesday and staff members have even been joined by musicians in the area to provide the soundtrack.

Ross added: "Staff and some customers have got involved and we have also had the choir come too.

"Neil Rigby also came in with his ukulele.

"There isn't one person who works here that hasn't dressed up with all age ranges from those in their 60s to teenagers.

"I have worked here for six months and Heath Stores has always raised money for charities whether it is for Alzheimer's or the local hospice.

"The reaction on social media has been very positive.

"We don't take ourselves too seriously and everyone has made an effort."
