Cardigan opticians raises money for Velindre

05 April, 2016

Specsavers in Cardigan has collected more than £190 for Velindre Cancer Centre.

Specialist care

The store on High Street raised £194 for VelindreCut, which is the largest non-surgical cancer Hospital in Wales providing radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other specialised anti-cancer treatments for over half the people of Wales.

It has been providing support and care to cancer patients in south Wales for almost 60 years and, on average, it provides care, treatment and support for more than 130,000 outpatients and day cases every year.

The money was collected from customers at Specsavers in Cardigan, who donated in-store after having their frames repaired or adjusted.

Vital work

Rowena Greasley, store manager at Specsavers in Cardigan, said: ‘Velindre provides vital day-to-day support and treatment for many people in Wales living with cancer. Specsavers has been involved in many fundraising events for the organisation in the past, and we’re delighted that the Cardigan store could contribute to this inspiring organisation again this year.

‘I would like to say a big thank you to all of our customers whose generous donations will go towards supporting Velindre and the incredible work that it does.’
