Specsavers Reading helps heroes
Specsavers in Reading will be welcoming the Military Wives Choir to sing outside their store to raise money for Help for Heroes.
Christmas lights switch on
On Saturday 15 November, when the Reading Christmas lights are switched on, Specsavers will play host to the group of women who will be singing in support of their husbands in the armed forces.
Store director Don Watts said: ‘We want to show our support and respect for Remembrance Day this week. ‘The Military Wives Choir reminds us of our fallen soldiers and those currently serving in the forces and what they’ve done for this country. We're inviting the Reading community to come and donate to Help for Heroes so that we can give something back to the troops.
Help for Heroes is a charity formed to help British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty by providing them with support and better services.
The Military Wives Choirs Foundation charity helps women in the military community around the UK to share the enjoyment and pride that comes from singing together.
