Specsavers in Southport supported a local soup kitchen by donating the income from every accessory sold andby hosting a free eye health clinic for homeless in need.
The opticians raised £676 in December from sales of accessories, which went directly to the Southport Soup Kitchen.
In addition, the store opened its doors on the 22nd January and offered a free eye health clinic to homeless people in Southport and dispensing free specticals to those in need.
The team also had collection boxes, which were available for customers to donate hats, scarves and blankets.
The Southport Soup Kitchen provides hot nourishing food and beverages to homeless and disadvantaged people in Southport – and is always looking for extra support during the winter months, especially over Christmas.
