A grandmother in Solihull was delighted to receive a home delivery of her new glasses from Specsavers in Solihull.
Chris Sewell, lab technician, from the store made the trip to drop off the new specs as part of the store’s commitment to help provide urgent and essential eye care to those who need it during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Not only did Chris drop off the specs, but he also bought a newspaper for the customer. ‘The staff member went above and beyond,’ commented the customer’s granddaughter. ‘These small acts of kindness make all the difference and help the elderly feel less isolated. I want to say a big thank you to them.’
‘We’re keen to safely help and support the local community, where we can,’ added store director Brad Parkes. ‘It’s thanks to our fantastic team and their commitment that we can carry on supporting those in need and I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all my colleagues.’
Specsavers' teams are classed as key workers to provide urgent and essential eye care to those who need it. This includes supporting other key workers who couldn’t function without their help and people who would come to harm without their health expertise, especially where the usual hospital services and NHS facilities are being prioritised for the fight against COVID-19.
