The March 7 event at Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care in Banbury's High Street was inspired by World Book Day.

To support the charity the branch is also running a colouring competition for children until April 26, with the £1 entry fee going to the charity.

Branch manager Daniel Bull, who became the BFG, said: “Alzheimer’s affects a growing number of people in our community and there is a real need for continued research and support.

He added: "Our book sale helped us to raise funds and awareness for a cause we care about.”
