Specsavers team members in Wisbech are proud to have taken part in the UK’s first Face Equality Day which took place on the 26th May 2017.
Face Equality Day is a campaign run by the charity Changing Faces. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of disfigurement and to ensure everyone is treated fairly and equally whatever the appearance of their face or body.
Help raising awareness
On the day staff members of the Wisbech store wore temporary butterfly tattoos on their faces, which is the symbol for the Changing Faces charity.
Tiffany Morgan said: ‘Wearing the tattoos on our faces really stood out to customers which prompted them to ask the purpose of them, giving us the opportunity to spread the word about this fantastic charity and Face Equality Day.’
Speaking about the awareness day, store director Gareth Drewett said: ‘We believe strongly in the importance of creating a culture of inclusion here in store for both staff members and customers. Therefore, I was delighted when the team suggested taking part in the Face Equality Day.’
The proud team members who took part include – Laura Anderson, Jemma Mellor, Caroline Archer, Tiffany Morgan, Rebecca Hempson, Josh Diggle, Klaudia Ziembika and Amy Carter.
