Local opticians supports British Heart Foundation
The team at Specsavers in Northallerton organised a raffle to celebrate the store’s 15th anniversary, with all proceeds going to the British Heart Foundation.
Customers were encouraged to buy tickets for £1 to be in with the chance to win a hamper full of treats such as chocolates, teddies, wine and pampering goodies.
The winner of the raffle was Miss Linda Carrick and a total of £80 was raised, which goes into the fundraising pot that currently stands at £812. Last year, a total of £1066 was raised.
A word from the director
Speaking about the fundraising, Ruth Sinclair, Northallerton store director said: ‘I’m so pleased that we were able to get our customers involved with celebrating our 15th anniversary, as well as boosting our fundraising pot. A huge thank you to everyone who supported the raffle and congratulations to Linda, we really hope she enjoys the treats! With only four months left, we’re well on our way to raising more than last year!’
