Colourful fundraising weekend ahead
Specsavers Bradley Stoke is holding back-to-back fun days this weekend to raise money for Guide Dogs and Breast Cancer Care.
The weekend of fundraising will kick off tomorrow (Friday 10) with staff wearing neon clothes and serving up an array of colourful cupcakes to support Guide Dogs Week. The team will then continue their efforts the following day (Saturday 11) by donning pink and selling treats in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
‘We’re so proud to be supporting Guide Dogs and Breast Cancer Care this month,’ said Ed Stanleigh, store director at Specsavers in Bradley Stoke. ‘The whole team will be getting into the fundraising spirit over the weekend and we welcome customers to stop by the store, enjoy a sweet treat and show their support for the charities.’
This year’s Guide Dogs Week runs from 4 until 12 October. Specsavers has been supporting the charity for more than 25 years. The funds raised will help Guide Dogs in its mission to provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month also runs throughout October and Breast Cancer Care is one of the UK’s leading charities, which provides information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
