March opticians go the extra mile for 5th Birthday
The Specsavers team in March has celebrated five years of business in the town by continuing their efforts to raise much needed funds for a local charity.
Funds for FACET
The store invited residents to join in their birthday celebrations and support FACET, a charity which helps adults with a range of disabilities, with a bake sale and raffle. The raffle, which includes donations from other local businesses, will continue throughout the month to help FACET reach their target of £20,000 for a new mobile classroom.
Going the extra mile
Trevor Clark, store director at Specsavers in March, says: ‘The team have really gone the extra mile to raise funds and have been dressed in sportswear for the last three weeks completing five miles a day on a cross trainer. We’ve had great fun doing it!
‘We are extremely proud to be celebrating these achievements and have already raised over £700, but this is really about all the adults at FACET.’
FACET provides a base for activities, training and community projects for adults with a range of disabilities from the Fenland area.
