Glowing for gold to fundraise for Guide Dogs
The Rugby store donned their brightest colours and said ‘Let’s Glow’ as they raised money for Guide Dogs on Friday 10 October.
Glow get ‘em!
Staff were kitted out in brightly coloured clothing and neon accessories as part of the nationwide Guide Dogs initiative. A representative from the charity was present with a four-legged friend to greet customers.
The team also offered glow in the dark Guide Dog pin badges in return for donations.
‘We were excited to welcome the charity into store to celebrate National Guide Dogs week with us,’ says Specsavers Rugby store director Bhavana Hughes. ‘The charity does fantastic work and we’re thrilled customers popped into the store, joined in the fun, and picked up a neon badge for this good cause!’
