While the recent Chester Pride event was reportedly a huge success, with much drinking, dancing and dressing in bright colours, Nice ‘n’ Naughty director Simon Prescott also used the occasion to honour the passing of a close friend.
Michael Britain, aka Hank, had been a big supporter of Pride and after he passed away Simon put together an activity designed to raise money for Pride in Hank’s memory. Setting up in local bar The Golden Eagle, Chester store manager Victoria Gower and fellow member of staff Karen Hewitt recruited a long-time friend of the company Ken Pleavin to assist them. Drinkers were invited to buy a raffle ticket and play ‘Guess the Weight’ with ElectraStim products. Raffle prizes ranged from wine and store vouchers donated by local businesses to electro-sex kits donated by Nice ‘n’ Naughty suppliers.
The raffle raised £150 towards Pride – a commendable sum, but Victoria was a little disappointed as she had hoped to raise more. However, Simon Prescott was so impressed with her efforts that he informed her that Nice ‘n’ Naughty would increase the money raised to £400.
