Louth optician raises £300 for Louth & District Hospice
Specsavers in Louth has been inspired by the recent Tour de France and has raised valuable funds for a local hospice by holding an in-store raffle, with a grand prize of a £200 Halfords voucher.
Staff at Specsavers in Louth raised £300 for the store’s chosen charity partner, Louth and District Hospice, which aims to develop a range of services for people with terminal illnesses, while also providing support for their families and carers.
The team sold more than 200 raffle tickets in total and the winner of the raffle, Neil Thompson, now has £200 to spend at the Halfords store in the town.
Andrew Downes, store director at Specsavers in Louth, comments: ‘Many of us at the store have seen first-hand how important the Louth and District Hospice’s work is, so we were honoured to hold the in-store raffle in order to raise valuable funds for this very worthy cause.
‘We’re really pleased that the raffle raised such a considerable amount, which brings our fundraising total for the hospice to more than £600 so far this year. I’d like to personally thank Halfords for kindly donating the £200 voucher, which we hope Neil enjoys spending.’
Specsavers in Louth will be collecting donations from customers for the remainder of the year in aid of the Louth and District Hospice. The donations go to improving the quality of life and care for patients during the crucial months of their lives they spend at the hospice.
