Opticians raises money through 20th birthday event
The Grantham Specsavers team has raised more than £100 in donations from generous customers for its nominated charity, the Grantham Talking Newspaper for the Blind.
The store hosted a 90’s themed celebration day on Saturday 28 June, as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations of the store opening in 1994, with staff dressed in 90s outfits and one of the store directors, Colin Ducker, welcoming customers as Mr Blobby!
Store director, Bijal Ladva, who dressed as Ali G on the day said: ‘We had a great time on Saturday and through the generosity of our customers and the support of colleagues in store, we have been able to raise hundreds of pounds for charities this year including Children in Need, the British Heart Foundation and St Barnabas hospice.'
Thanks to all customers
'We’d also like to thank our thousands of customers who have visited the store since we opened our doors in 1994.’
Customers still have the chance to enter a competition to win a pair of designer specs by matching photos of staff members from 1994 with their current pictures in store, until the end of July.
Glasses cleaning and minor repairs
Spec wearers are also invited to pop into the store for a glasses MOT (cleaning and adjustment) in return for a small donation to the store’s charity, Grantham’s Talking Newspaper for the Blind.
