Specsavers in Grimsby held a fundraiser for Guide Dogs UK on Thursday 9 October.
Guide Dog toy as prize
The Specsavers staff ran a competition throughout the week for a chance to win an official Guide Dog toy and a box of chocolates. For those who don’t win one, Guide Dog toys are also for sale in-store.
Standing out for Guide Dogs
On the day, the team at Grimsby Specsavers will be dressed in their finest neon clothing, wigs and jewellery as part of the ‘Stand Out For Guide Dogs’ campaign. Visitors to the store will be able to indulge in a variety of homemade cakes and cookies, courtesy of the Specsavers staff.
