Barnstaple opticians make a spectacle of themselves to support Blind Veterans UK
The team in Barnstaple are donning their daftest fancy dress and striking their best poses, as part of Armed Forces week.
Fancy dress fun
To show support for this year’s Armed Forces Week (20-26 June), staff are hosting a day of fancy dress fun on Saturday 25 June to raise money for Blind Veterans UK.
The store will also be donating £1 from each eye test to the cause and collection tins are available at the till point for customers to make a donation.
Emily Waters, store director, says: ‘Blind Veterans UK provides crucial support to those who have either lost or had their sight damaged while representing our country in the armed forces. We encourage all of our staff, customers and wider members of the community to get involved in whatever way they can – whether it’s sticking on their glad rags or sparing a little change.’
