Pounds for pups at Specsavers Petersfield
Specsavers in Petersfield welcomed one of its furriest customers into the store for a day of fundraising to support Guide Dogs.
On Saturday 11 October staff from Specsavers hosted a Guide Dog from the Guide Dogs charity in the store and held a day of indoor cycling to raise money.
To help raise money staff took it in turns to cycle on the indoor exercise bike throughout the day, pedalling a whopping 200 kilometres. The store managed to raise an impressive £307 on the day.
Jo Cox, store director at Specsavers Petersfield, says: ‘Guide Dogs do a lot of fantastic work in the community and it was great that we had the chance to invite the a Guide Dog into the store to raise awareness.
‘We were delighted to welcome the pup to the store and get a pedal on to raise money. I would like to thank the local people of Petersfield for their generosity and for joining us for a day of fun.’
