Cardiff opticians gets bouncy for Sports Relief
Staff at Specsavers in Cardiff are jumping for joy after raising money for Sport Relief. The store, located on Queen Street, organised a trampoline day, which saw the team bounce for six hours in aid of the charity.
Staff, including optical assistant Nancie Edwards, raised a total of £31, by keeping the trampoline occupied for six consecutive hours.
Donations were made by customers visiting the store for their eye and ear tests. Sport Relief was started by the group behind Comic Relief in 1985, and has helped thousands of people across Britain and beyond. Of the money raised by the public, 50% is used to make a difference in the UK, and the other 50% is used to transform lives in some of the world’s poorest communities.
Frank Moloney, store director at Specsavers in Cardiff, said: ‘As a local optician, it’s great to support charities whose work positively impacts our local community as well as those further afield.
‘I’d like to thank the Specsavers team for stepping up to the challenge on our trampoline day, and to our customers for their generous donations.’
