A member of the team from Specsavers in Stafford will swap her specs for running shoes this weekend as she takes on the Colour Obstacle Rush for Vision Aid Overseas.

Running, obstacles and colour collide 

From inflatable castles and giant slides through to pillar tunnels and rapid fire, Natasha Sutton will tackle a host of obstacles as she’s doused with colour powder during the five kilometre course on 18 June. Natasha hopes to raise £200 from the run which will support Vision Aid Overseas continue its mission to transform access to eyecare in developing countries.

‘I’m really looking forward to taking part in the Colour Rush this month to raise money for VAO,’ said Natasha. ‘It looks like a really fun event so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it, even with all of the obstacles that are involved! I’m raising money for VAO which is a charity we’ve been supporting at Specsavers for a while now and they do some fantastic work abroad to make eyecare more accessible.’

Customers have also been dropping off their unwanted specs in store to be recycled by the charity, helping to fund its ongoing work.

Supporting Vision Aid Overseas

Store director, Jason Guy, added: ‘We’ve collected hundreds of old pairs of glasses with the generous support of our customers, all of which helps to drive funds for VAO. We’re really pleased that Natasha has chosen to take her support a step further by taking part in the Colour Obstacle Rush this month and we wish her the best of luck.’

Vision Aid Overseas is dedicated to fighting poverty by transforming access to eyecare in developing countries, improving people’s quality of life. Funds are raised by recycling old glasses in an environmentally friendly process. For more information, visit www.visionaidoverseas.org.
