Harlow team support Armed Forces Week
Specsavers Harlow had a great time making a spectacle of themselves for charity.
Supporting Blind Veterans UK
Colleagues at Specsavers Harlow had a week of fundraising to support Blind Veterans UK during Armed Forces Week (20-26 June). For every eye test conducted, £1 was donated to the charity which has seen a great figure of £259 raised alongside a cake sale that took nearly £80 to add to the pot.
Fun in store
Staff also made a spectacle of themselves by dressing up and taking some fun selfies. Director Sarah Flowers with trainee Adam Ovid embraced the moment with this picture - all for a great cause!
