Specsavers Cambourne and Specsavers Redruth have made a donation of £500 to Camborne, Pool and Redruth (CPR) Foodbank to fund 20 Christmas family food hampers.

'Keen to support a local cause'

Lucy Eva, Specsavers store director, said: ‘We were keen to team up and support a local cause this Christmas and one that benefits our local community. It is an awful thought that there are some families who will be without basic food at Christmas time.

'When we heard about the work that Don and his team were doing, we were keen to lend our support in any way we could.’

Continue to support people in need

Don Gardner, director of operations at Transition CPR, said: ‘CPR Foodbank is our biggest project. It is only with the support of businesses like Specsavers Camborne and Specsavers Redruth that we can continue to support people in need.

‘The need for a foodbank has increased in the last 18 months and this figure is set to keep on rising, not only in Cornwall but nationally.’
