Deputy mayor elect to re-open opticians for charity

19 May, 2016

Chatham’s deputy mayor elect, councillor Gloria Opara, is visiting Specsavers on Saturday 21 May to officially open our newly refurbished, state-of-the-art store in a bid to raise funds for the Demelza Hospice.

New optical and hearing facilities

The store now boasts two contact lens clinics, six optical testing rooms and a brand new designated audiology testing room. Staff will be hosting a raffle and face painting for children in store to raise funds for the charity, which provides care and support for children and babies with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions.

A word from the store director

Store Director, David Moorman, said: ‘We are honoured to host our deputy mayor elect in store this weekend and we are really looking forward to raising as much money as possible for the Demelza Hospice.

‘We want to give something back to the charity, which does incredible work to support children and babies in need. Without the help of charitable donations, they wouldn’t be able to keep providing the care they do, so we’d love to see as many people in store as possible to help raise funds and celebrate the re-opening of our new rooms.’

Bag a deal Local celebrity Jamie Johnson, most well-known for his rise to stardom on ‘The Voice’, will also be on hand to encourage donations on the day. Golden tickets will be offered to customers, providing them with 25 per cent off all frames.
