Rugby team wear dots to raise lots

Members of staff from Specsavers in Rugby were spotted in dotted clothing to raise money for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

The whole team got involved and raised more than £150 by wearing spotted clothes and holding a cake sale throughout the week.

A word from the store director

Store director, Bhavna Hughes said: ‘It’s been a pleasure not only to raise some funds to support the work of the RNIB but increase awareness of their vital work, supporting those affected by sight loss. Thanks to everyone who popped by the Rugby store and bought a cake to support our fundraising.’

The RNIB wear dots to raise lots campaign highlights the impact of braille, a unique system of raised dots that can be read by touch.  Learning braille means that blind and partially-sighted people can enjoy reading.
