Helping the community is a priority for most at the moment, something demonstrated by Specsavers Telford who delivered a pair of specs to a lady who is self-isolating.
The lady’s daughter sent an email to the store explaining that her mum had accidentally broken her specs. Within an hour, someone went out to pick them up as the lady is isolating and had broken her wrist the previous week.
A word from the store director
‘We were able to pick up the specs, fix and safely drop them off the same day,’ said Specsavers Telford store director, Vinay Najran. ‘Even though the store is closed for routine testing, we are open for urgent and essential care so it’s really important at the moment that we help where we can. We included some chocolate and a card sending our best wishes which hopefully helped put a smile on her face during what is a tricky time.’
Specsavers' teams are classed as key workers to provide urgent and essential eye care to those who need it. That 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.
