No wool over the local opticians’ eyes

05 December, 2014

Staff from Specsavers in Winsford are hosting a weekend of festive fun, frolics and fundraising in aid of global charity, Save the Children.

Festive extravaganza

On Friday 12 and Saturday 13 December, the Winsford team will don their favourite woolly Christmas jumpers and customers are invited to visit the store and vote for their favourite. All votes will be entered into a prize draw, the winner of which can start the festive celebrations early with a delicious box of chocolates.

Snow sweepstake

Visitors to the store, in Winsford Shopping Centre, can also enter the Snow Sweepstake, the game which requires participants to guess what jumper Channel Four’s Jon Snow is wearing.

With delicious mince pies and cakes on sale, the weekend is set to be an exciting festive extravaganza, with all proceeds going to Save the Children.

Dedicated to ensuring every child has the best chance for success, the charity has pioneered programmes that give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and be protected from harm.

Supporting valuable children's charity

Peter Adshead, store director at Specsavers in Winsford, said: ‘As many of our staff are parents, as well as many of our customers, we have a special place in our heart for Save the Children and the incredible work this charity does.

‘Our weekend of festive fundraising will not only support the charity’s ‘Make the World Better with a Sweater’ campaign, it will also allow us to spread some cheer throughout the community in the busy Christmas countdown.

‘We hope to see many of our customers, old and new, over the weekend, together raising vital funds for Save the Children.’
