Grannies cause a stir
A duo of Dancing Grannies helped celebrate the official opening of Specsavers Longbridge.
Staff at the store were joined by the Black Country’s dancing duo, alongside Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers, and Jasmin Rana from Focus Birmingham to celebrate the store’s official opening.
The day also kick started the store’s fundraising for Focus Birmingham, its nominated local charity for 2017.
