Brentwood exceeds charity cycle goal
Last month Brentwood store director, Manoj Pater, joined a number of other Essex store directors and the Essex regional relationship manager, Roy Thorogood, to take part in a mega charity cycle challenge.
The mega bike ride, which saw the brave Specsavers staff cycle 64 miles, was organised to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The team initially set a target to raise a whopping £1000 for their chosen cause – but the team have excelled all expectations and have raised an amazing £1,817.
Speaking of his delight on how much the team raised, Manoj Pater, store director at Specsavers in Brentwood, said: ‘I’m thrilled we’ve raised almost double our target amount.
‘Even though the bike ride was a very trying task it was worth it in the end to raise a great amount for the Alzheimer’s Society.’
Manoj added: ‘It was a great day and I know the Essex stores are planning more fundraising activities for the future as well as ensuring all stores have a qualified Dementia Friend.’
