The parents of film director Edgar Wright have teamed up with Buxton’s Variety video shop to raise money for charity.

Phil McKenna from Variety, who was inspired by an aunt to raise funds for Blythe House Hospice, and the Down’s Syndrome Association, has been supported in his efforts by Buxton residents Chris and Lesley Wright.

Three lucky winners of the raffle, can each win signed copies of three of Edgar’s films - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

Tickets for the raffle, which will be drawn just before Christmas, are £1 each and are available from Variety, on High Street in Buxton.
