Northfield host tombola to tackle children’s eye health
Northfield Specsavers has hosted a tombola during National Children’s Eye Health Month (24 October – 23 November) in aid of deafblind charity, Sense, raising £110.
This initiative by staff from Specsavers Bristol Road South has taken the total amount raised this year to more than £500.
A word from the store director
‘We thought the tombola would be a great way to raise money for Sense, while at the same time drawing people’s focus to the importance of children’s eye health during National Children’s Eye Health Month,’ said Declan Casserly, store director. ‘The month encourages parents to recognise the fundamental importance of their child’s eye health and the effects poor eye sight can have on a child’s social, physical and mental wellbeing and development. Half term was the perfect opportunity to speak to parents and children alike, and push the message of regular sight tests.
‘Sense see first-hand how important children’s vision is and work closely with parents and guardians to help them understand and support their child’s needs when it comes to sight loss. We are delighted to hand over the proceeds from the tombola and know it will go towards supporting the incredible initiatives Sense has implemented nationwide. A big thank you to all our generous customers for contributing to this very worthy cause.’
