Specsavers Corstorphine is selling mini knitted Christmas stockings to raise vital funds in support of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).
The stockings – that were knitted and donated to the store by patient Christine Barclay – at £1 each, in order to continue raising annual funds for the charity.
Staff at the store have been undertaking different fundraising activities this year and have raised £250 so far for RNIB, one of the UK’s leading sight loss charities and the largest community of blind and partially sighted people.
A word from the store director
Adam Gordon, store director at Specsavers Corstorphine, said: ‘RNIB is a very special charity and each year we work closely with them to transform the nation’s eye health through education, awareness and action. We’re proud to support RNIB and hope our customers pop in to pick up one of festive decorations. They are perfect Christmas gifts’
Angela Preston, Area Fundraising Manager (East Scotland) for RNIB, said: ‘The team at Specsavers Corstorphine are great supporters of RNIB and we are delighted that they are donated the funds to the charity.
‘We simply couldn’t provide the care and support we do if it wasn’t for the help and support of our local community and we’re so grateful to the Specsavers team for their continued support.’
