A spook-tacular vision in Swindon

29 October, 2014

Specsavers Swindon is hosting a frighteningly good fun-day this Halloween (Friday 31 October) to raise money for local charity, Wiltshire Sight.

Customers who visit the store on Friday will be greeted by ghouls, vampires and other spooky characters dishing out sweets and treats, as well as a fully spooked-out store. There will be a face painter available all day to turn younger customers into their favourite scary characters in return for a donation towards Wiltshire Sight.

David Grieves, store director at Specsavers Swindon, said: ‘As it’s Halloween and half term, we thought it would be a good opportunity to have some fun with our customers while raising money for a great cause.

'We have supported Wiltshire Sight for some time now, and some of the team will be taking part in a skydive to raise further funds for the charity, so we wanted to get behind them with this event and support them in reaching their fundraising target.’

Wiltshire Sight (previously Wiltshire Blind Association) was established more than 90 years ago for servicemen blinded during the Great War. They currently support more than 1,500 registered blind and partially sighted people throughout Wiltshire to live life as full as possible by providing regular support and a range of drop-in sessions and social clubs.
