The teams at Specsavers Chatham, Specsavers Gillingham and Specsavers Strood joined forces at the end of June to support Armed Forces Day.

And the teams raised an amazing £377 to pay for an afternoon tea treat for a local group of elderly people.

Back to the Forties

The Chatham High Street store really went to town by reliving the 1940’s for three days – complete with music, costumes and decorations from the decade. They also designed their own ration books and sold ration bags filled with sweets to children for a donation.

Thanks to those tasty treats and a great raffle, the Chatham store raised £300 alone.

A word from the store director

Craig Holland, store director in Chatham, Gillingham and Strood, said: ‘I am really proud of the teams at all three stores for their fundraising efforts, and Chatham definitely get a gold star for really getting into the spirit of the event.

‘Our armed forces do, and have done, a great deal for us, and we were delighted to be able to give something back to thank them for their efforts.’
