Specsavers Ludlow has been raising funds and awareness to highlight autism, specifically to help the West Midlands Autism Charity.
As well as wearing different coloured tops to reflect the diversity of people and their families who live with the condition, posters have been displayed in store and an information video has been available. Customers have also been able to make donations.
A word from the store director
‘Autism is an invisible and often misunderstood condition, so we wanted to do something to highlight it,’ said store director, Nicola Aubrey. ‘We’ve had lots of discussion with our customers which has been great to help raise awareness.’
