STAFF at Thurrock Health Centre dressed up as characters from children’s TV and films to entertain children and raise more than £300 for three charities.

Dr Doolittle and Bitsy Bell from Reppro-Kids Theatre helped to keep youngsters entertained, along with facepainters Louis and Jade.

There was also a raffle and balloon modelling at the clinic in Grays High Street.

Money raised will be split evenly and handed to Richard House Hospice, Make a Wish and Women’s Aid.
