Raising a glass to 20 years
The team at Specsavers in Evesham have raised their glasses to 20 years in business with a fundraising day for Guide Dogs.
Staff at the store all dressed in black tie outfits and served tasty treats to visitors in return for donations to their nominated charity Guide Dogs, raising more than £150.
The store first opened at 25 Bridge Street on 4 December 1995 with a team of just three staff and one test room. Today, a team of 22 look after the eyecare needs of the local community with four test rooms now available at the store’s new location at 24 Bridge Street.
‘This is a fantastic milestone to have reached and we’re delighted so many people came along to support and celebrate with us,’ said Amy Liau, store director.
‘Looking back over the last 20 years, which have gone so fast, it’s amazing to see how the business has changed. But our values and commitment remain the same – ensuring that we provide the very best in eyecare to all our customers.’
Guide Dogs provides mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. They also campaign for the rights of people with visual impairment, educate the public about eyecare and fund eye disease research. Visit www.guidedogs.org.uk for more information.
