Members of the team from Specsavers on Regent Street also offered specs MOTs (checking and adjustments) for customers and passers-by, with the donations going to the charity.
A word from the store director
‘Children in Need is an excellent charitable event and being one of the biggest fundraising days across the country, we were keen to show our support,’ said store director, David Grieves. ‘Our fundraiser was a great opportunity to raise essential funds and make a difference in the lives of children across the country.’
The store rasied £150
With staff donating £2 each to participate in the non-uniform day, and customers making donations to get their specs repaired, the store’s fundraising total for all the activities was a brilliant £150.
Children in Need is the BBC’s UK corporate charity and every penny raised goes towards helping disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
The charity provides support in the form of grants to organisations working with children who may have experienced mental, physical or sensory disabilities, behavioural or psychological disorders, are living in poverty or situations of deprivation, or are suffering through distress, abuse or neglect.
