Opticians see pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month
The Droitwich store was pretty in pink as they hosted a fundraising day for Breast Cancer Care on Saturday 18 October.
On the day
As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the team donned their finest pink gear to serve up home baked treats to customers, in return for donations.
Shoppers could make a donation to win a prize from the tombola, which included gifts donated from local stores such as gift vouchers, children’s toys, computer games, alcohol and much more!
Emma Singh, store director at Specsavers in Droitwich, said: ‘I’m so proud that we managed to raise over £200 for Breast Cancer Care, the team put a lot of effort into fundraising and we wanted to highlight the important message behind the cause. We want to thank customers who were so generous helping us raise this fantastic amount and joined in the fun on the day.’
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.
