Bob Martin receives his Halloween hamper

There were some spooky goings-on at Sutton-in-Ashfield Specsavers this Halloween as staff set their sights on raising funds for charity with a frightening fun day.

Customers were greeted by staff in ghoulish costumes and the store was decorated with spooky spiders and webs. To help raise funds for the Stroke Association, visitors were given the chance to enter a scary raffle in return for a donation to the charity, to win a big Halloween hamper full of tricks and treats. 

Together the team raised £61 and the hamper was won by Mr Bob Martin, who said he would share it with his grandchildren.

Nigel Davidson, store director, said: ‘We had lots of fun getting in to the Halloween spirit and we’re really grateful to everyone who made a donation to the Stroke Association. I’m sure Mr Martin’s grandchildren will be thrilled with all the sweets their granddad won!’

Stroke Association is the leading charity in the UK changing the world for people affected by stroke. In the last 20 years the number of people dying of a stroke has halved while the number of major strokes has decreased by 40 per cent and more people than ever are benefitting from cutting-edge treatments and making full recoveries. The charity has been at the heart of every one of these developments, championing the cause of stroke and stroke survivors.
