Generous donations from Cheltenham locals have helped Specsavers Cheltenham provide vital play equipment for the charity Family Space.
Specsavers on the High Street teamed up with the store in Sainsbury’s on the Gallagher Retail Park and raised £170 by selling homemade Christmas crackers containing Specsavers goodies throughout the festive period. With the money raised, the store is donating two Little Tykes cars as well as much needed arts and crafts equipment.
A word from the store director
‘Family Space does some fantastic work to support disadvantaged families in the local area,’ said store director Melanie Brackstone. ‘We’re really pleased to be able to make this donation to help the children the charity works with. The equipment will be used in sessions held at the YMCA Sports Centre and we hope it has a real benefit for those who use it.’
Based at the Oasis Centre on Cassin Drive, Family Space has been supporting Cheltenham families for more than 20 years. The charity provides a number of services including Time Out for Mums, Befrienders, Stay and Play and acts as the Cheltenham Child Contact Centre.
