The First Wormley Scout and Guide group became honorary team members of Specsavers Hoddesdon last month, when they joined the team to help sell jester themed frames for charity.
Why were the scouts at the store?
For the fifth year in a row, Specsavers Hoddesdon was supporting Comic Relief by selling funny frames in-store. This year, in keeping with the charity’s comic ethos, jester-themed red glasses were sold, for £2, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. The First Wormley Scout and Guide Group visited on Saturday morning to help bring attention to the cause and sell some frames themselves.
A thank you to the scouts
To thank the scout group for all their hard work, the Specsavers team recently visited a local school some of the scout attend to present a talk all about eyes. Over 300 children were in attendance, to hear all about the importance of eye care and how the eye works, and receive goody bags of colouring-in pics, mini trophies and a free eye test leaflet for parents.
A word from the store director
Hoddesdon Store Director, Michael Langley, says: ‘Our glasses this year were fantastic, and we are so grateful to everyone to the Scouts who helped out and those who popped in to see us over the past couple of weeks to pick up a jester-themed pair for themselves. We are really proud to support Comic Relief and all the good causes they fund.’
