Staff at Specsavers in Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs raised more than £290 in aid of lung cancer charity Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.
In memory of Tom
The donation follows a Scotland-wide fundraising initiative in memory of a much-loved colleague, Specsavers director, Tom Simpson, who sadly died in March 2018 after battling lung cancer.
The stores donated £1 per sight test from 15 – 22 July as well as organising a bake sale offering a selection of delicious cakes in return for a donation.
Store director Neil Drain, said: ‘Tom was well-known by many Specsavers staff across Scotland, having worked for the company for more than 19 years.
‘Despite fighting lung cancer for over four years, Tom dedicated lots of his time to raising awareness for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation while highlighting the lack of funding available to investigate and treat the disease.
‘We were very proud to join Specsavers stores across the country to help continue his amazing work.’
