BUXTON’S Wells Dressing Festival royalty have been given a boost thanks to a Buxton supermarket.

Dan Hopkinson from Waitrose presented a cheque for £379 to the group.

The funds were provided by the supermarket through their community programme which sees shoppers decide which good causes benefit from the scheme each month.

The money will be used by the organisers to help towards the cost of the dresses for the 2012 Wells Dressing Festival royalty.

The youngsters, who are selected to take on a particular role for a year, represent the town at various events, carnivals and functions throughout the area.
