Leg warmers and an array of neon colours greeted customers visiting Specsavers Hereford as part of a 1980s themed fundraising day which raised more than £200 for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Throughout February, the store supported the charity and kicked things off by wearing light blue on World Cancer Day (Tuesday 4 February). This was followed by the 80s fundraising day which saw staff dress up in outfits which gave a nod to what is often referred to as the decade that style forgot.  

A word from the store director

‘The whole team went to town with their outfits which made it a really fun day in store,’ said store director at Specsavers Hereford, Nialle Smith. ‘Thanks to generous donations from customers, we raised £234 which we will be delighted to hand over to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.’
