Bridgwater opticians dig deep to support Blind Veterans UK
Staff in Bridgwater are digging deep and raising money for Blind Veterans UK, as part of Armed Forces Week. The team will be taking donations for the charity all week, with collection boxes at the till point.
Andrew Cullerne, store director, said: ‘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. Armed Forces Week is a brilliant chance to dig deep for this fantastic organisation. It makes a difference to some very deserving people.’
The charity provides residential and respite care plus sports facilities, as well as qualified welfare staff who help blind veterans across the UK to live independently within their own communities.
