Mold store looks to books for family fun day

The team at Specsavers Mold dressed as their favourite characters
Staff at Specsavers Mold dressed as characters from their favourite children’s stories to celebrate International Children’s Book Day.
The team at Specsavers on High Street fundraised for Guide Dogs for the Blind throughout the fun-packed day.
With activities including face painting and a cake sale, children of all ages were invited to come along and join in the fun, and the team raised £100 for the charity.
There were also extra appointments for kids, as the store launched its ‘two free pairs’ promotion, where children who choose their free NHS glasses from Specsavers also receive a second free pair.*
Katy Owen, store manager at Specsavers Mold, says: ‘We all have fond memories of the first great books that we come across as children, whether through listening to a bedtime story or picking up a book on our own.
"Struggling to see the words properly at an early age can put a child off reading"
‘We want to stress to parents how important it is to make sure your child’s vision is up to scratch, as struggling to see the words properly at an early age can put a child off reading for a long time.’
Guide Dogs for the Blind provides mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people by providing trained dogs, as well as campaigning for the rights of people with visual impairment, educating the public about eye care and funding eye disease research.
