Raising a festive smile in Norwich
December is here and Christmas Jumper Day 2016 has come to Norwich.
Staff from both Norwich stores donned their festive knits in exchange for donations to deafblindness charity Sense. The two stores are truly getting into the festive spirit as they will be staying knitted up all the way until Christmas Eve.
Specsavers Norwich store director, Robert Ellis, says: ‘Nothing says Christmas more than a fun and festive jumper. What better way to support the incredible work that Sense does in support of those who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs, to enjoy more independent lives, than to raise a smile from all our customers.’
Sense is a national charity whose expertise lies in supporting individuals with communication needs benefits people of all ages, as well as their families and carers. Founded in 1955 by a group of families affected by rubella, Sense developed specialist skills and knowledge in supporting people to communicate, express themselves and grow in independence. This experience now enables Sense to help people with a much wider range of disabilities.
