Opticians are pretty in pink for charity
Employees from the Stafford store were seeing pink as they hosted a fundraising day for Breast Cancer Care on Saturday 18 October.
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the team were decked out in their finest pink gear to serve up home baked treats to customers, in return for donations.
Shoppers could also enter the raffle for a chance to win a £100 Specsavers voucher or a hair cut courtesy of Toni & Guy as well as take part in a competition to guess ‘how many sweets in a jar’. Staff handed out balloons to passers-by!
Jason Guy, store director, said: ‘Unfortunately most of us know someone affected by breast cancer. We wanted to raise as much as possible for this fantastic charity so we were glad customers joined us in store and helped contribute to this great cause.’
About the charity
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual initiative which sees people across the globe fundraise for causes that support world-class research and development for breast cancer. In the last twenty years, the campaign to overcome breast cancer has gone from strength to strength, and more women are outliving the disease than ever before. But, it's still the most common form of cancer.
Specsavers offices and stores across the UK are taking part in fundraising activity for Breast Cancer Care during October.
