October fundraising for Velindre
Specsavers in Ammanford has raised more than £400 for Velindre Cancer Centre with a month of fundraising.
Throughout October, the store raised a total of £430 for the cancer charity, which is Specsavers’ national Charity of the Year in Wales.
Halloween fun day
On the final day of fundraising staff held a spooky in-store fun day to celebrate Halloween. Staff dressed up in scary costumes and held a raffle to win a Halloween hamper full of spooky sweets and spectacle cleaning products. Staff also offered face painting for children for a donation.
Kevin McCarthy, director of Specsavers in Ammanford, said: ‘I am delighted to have raised such an impressive total for Velindre in just one month. Everyone really got into the Halloween spirit on our final day of fundraising.
‘The event was really popular, with lots of visitors calling in to enter our raffle and for their own "little monsters" to have their faces painted.
‘Velindre is a very deserving cause that helps people across Wales who are facing cancer, and we are very proud to support them in store.’
