The Antrim Specsavers store has raised a fantastic overall total of £1,063 for Children in Need through a series of recent fundraising events held at the store.

Fundraising success 

The store’s team took part in another recent initiative where staff completed a sponsored cycle. The team all donned their new Children in Need branded T-Shirts and collected any unwanted change from the public and customers.

To add to the funds, the store has also purchased three Pudsey Bears over the last number of months, which have each been raffled off as prizes, in addition they also purchased Pudsey onesies and Pudsey T-Shirts to help them look the part for their chosen charities, all proceeds went directly to Children in Need.

Thank you

Store director, Davin Quinn, says: ‘The Children in Need fundraising day was a brilliant day in store, children and parents alike enjoyed themselves immensely, and I think that can be reflected by the amount of money we raised. It was great to see so many people willing to provide support to this initiative and the entire team here at the Antrim store really supported the recent event.

‘I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along and donated on the day. We are delighted to have raised this amount of money for such a worthy charity. The community support for anything that we do has always been great, and we really appreciate every penny that is donated.’
