Specsavers in Sainsbury’s on the Gallagher Retail Park in Cheltenham have gone dotty about an opportunity to raise money for the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB).

Sporting spots

The team sported spotty clothing and baked delicious cakes, festooned with chocolate buttons and sweets to fundraise for the charity campaign.

Store director, Melanie Brackstone said: ‘It’s been a pleasure not only to raise some funds to the support the work of the RNIB but increase awareness of their vital work, supporting those affected by sight loss. 

'Thanks to everyone who popped by our Cheltenham North-West store and bought a cake to support our fundraising.’

Impact of braille

The RNIB wear dots to raise lots campaign highlights the impact of braille, a unique system of raised dots that can be read by touch.  Learning braille means that blind and partially-sighted people can enjoy reading for life.
