Opticians from Specsavers in Hartlepool are celebrating Guide Dogs Week in store

Specsavers in Hartlepool is reaching out to customers and local communities in aid of the Guide Dogs Week 2015 theme ‘Let’s Glow’, by donning neon to show their support for the many people living with sight loss in the local community.

Throughout Guide Dogs Week, the charity’s annual awareness and fundraising week which takes place from the 3-11 October, store staff will be dressing up in bright clothes, decorating stores and taking part in an array of charity challenges.

A word from the store director

Ian Walker, store director of Specsavers Hartlepool, said: ‘Specsavers has been a proud supporter of Guide Dogs for more than 10 years. Thanks to the support of our customers we have raised a nationwide total of £270,000 in the past four years, which has funded 25 guide dog puppies. We’d like to encourage old and new faces to join us in-store’
