Specsavers in Mold brought a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the town by holding a French-themed fundraising day.

Collecting funds for Nightingale House Hospice, the team at the Mold High Street store dressed in their best French-style outfits, served croissants and decked the store in a French bistro style.

Jørgen Simonsen

The day was inspired by Jørgen Simonsen, the iconic Danish designer responsible for the latest Osiris range to be launched at Specsavers.  

Having worked at some of the world’s leading fashion houses including Chanel, Givenchy and Versace and dressing the likes of Madonna and Nicole Kidman among a host of A-list stars, Jørgen’s latest collection is suitably vibrant and unique.

Added 'Ooh la la'

Katy Owen, store manager at Specsavers Mold, says: ‘It was Breton, beret and baguette central, and we saw lots of customers in store taking advantage of our added “oo la la” on the day.

Customers gave generously

‘It was all for a good cause, as the team made donations to Nightingale Hospice on the day, and customers gave generously, too. They definitely got into the spirit, greeting us with plenty of ‘bonjour’s.

‘There’s something about French style that’s a bit irresistible, so we’re all really enjoyed our day of French fancy.’

Nightingale House Hospice
