The teams at Specsavers in Newport and Ryde turned back time to raise money to support people with sight loss.

Celebrating RNIB's 150th anniversary 

To celebrate Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)’s 150th anniversary, the stores hosted a Vintage Tea in a nod to the sight loss charity’s milestone.

The store was decorated with bunting and balloons, tea and coffee were offered to customers and delicious cakes were baked in support of the event during National Eye Health Week on 24th-30th September.

Staff even dressed up in 1950’s style costumes to really get into the swing of things.

£50 was raised 

With more than 100 customers attending on the day and enjoying the tea party, £50 was raised for the RNIB which will provide vital funds for those suffering with sight loss.

A word from the ophthalmic directory

Tim Kidd, ophthalmic director from Specsavers Newport and Ryde says: ‘We want to say a huge thank you to all our customers for coming out to support our Vintage Tea and the incredible work or the RNIB. The day was filled with fun and proved to be a huge success. By the end of the day all the cakes had sold out!’
