Opticians lights up Beverley in aid of local charity
Staff at Specsavers in Beverly are doing their bit for charity by taking part in this years’ Christmas Tree Festival at Beverley Minster.
Breathe for Cameron
The team at Beverley will this year be decorating their tree and raising funds for Breathe for Cameron, a charity set up to raise awareness for asthma in the UK, which will be on display at the Minster from Friday 9 – Sunday 11 December.
Breathe for Cameron was set up in memory of Cameron Good, a young boy from Hull who sadly died as a result of an asthma attack he suffered while playing football.
The Beverley store will also host a collection box in store throughout the month.
All donations will go to the charity which aims to raise awareness for the seriousness of asthma and is campaigning to provide schools and businesses with emergency inhalers.
Jeremy Beesley, store director at Specsavers in Beverley, said: ‘This year we’ve decided to support Breathe for Cameron, a wonderful cause which started locally and we’re hoping to be able to collect as much money as possible for the charity.
‘The team have had great fun decorating the tree and I’d encourage members of the public to come along to see our tree and donate generously in store.’
