Didcot feast their eyes on fundraising
The team at Specsavers in Didcot raised more than £80 for Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) by hosting a week of international lunches for staff.
Members of the team from Thailand, Spain, Romania, England, Scotland, and of Indian and Pakistani origin, each cooked something typical from their country over a five-day week. Other members of the team then got to enjoy the delights in return for donations to RNIB.
‘This was a great way to not only raise funds for RNIB, but to also celebrate our team’s wealth of different cultures and make our lunches more enjoyable,’ said store director Rukhsana Bi.
