LIVE mannequins were used by Impact on the corner of High Street and Market Place, Oakham, as part of its relaunch and to promote its charity raffle which is being drawn on Saturday.

Shoppers in the town centre had the surprise of their lives when they were browsing the shop windows and the mannequins moved.

Manager Lauren Brand used her friends as models. She said: “It was awesome. There were 11 live mannequins all together and the people walking past and noticing them were hilarious. It definitely caught their attention.”

Raffle tickets are still available from the shop for £1 a strip and prizes have been donated by Rutland businesses. All money will go to Cancer Research UK
