Specsavers Gorleston will be holding a charity family fun day on Saturday 31 August – and they would love to see as many local people as possible in store to join in with the fun.

The Lowestoft Road store will be welcoming a magician, balloon modelling and face painting, and the team will also be holding a bake sale and tombola, all available in return for donations to the Louise Hamilton Centre.

Great local cause

The Louise Hamilton Centre is set in the grounds of the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston and provides care and support to patients across the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, and their families.

It is named after Louise Hamilton, who was born in Gorleston and sadly died of breast cancer at just 28 years old. Her mother was inspired to start fundraising for the centre after seeing the support Louise received elsewhere during her battle against the disease.

A word from the store director

Richard Pugh, Martin McCormack and Ali Ganiwalla, store directors in Gorleston, said: ‘The Louise Hamilton Centre does some amazing work with local people and their families at a very difficult time for them, and we wanted to do our bit to support them in store.

‘We would be delighted to see you in store on the day, and can promise fun for all the family.’
