A donation of £100 was presented to Children in Poverty Inverclyde by the Greenock store this month.

The money was raised throughout December when staff wore Christmas jumpers every Friday and Saturday in exchange for a donation.

Supporting a vital local charity

Customers also had the chance to support the charity by donating money in return for free specs MOTs.

Patrick Burke, chairman of Children in Poverty Inverclyde, visited the store to collect the cheque from members of staff, Rachel Brown and Chris Squires.

Festive spirit

Specsavers Greenock store director, Lesley Brown, said: ‘We were delighted to welcome Patrick to the store to present him with the donation.

‘Donning Christmas jumpers in aid of such a fantastic charity was a great way to get in the festive spirit.

‘We have raised more than £300 throughout the year for a variety of charities including Sound Seekers, Guide Dogs Scotland and Macmillan Cancer Support. It was wonderful to end the year with a fundraiser for Children in Poverty Inverclyde.’
