Story-time at Winchester

Face painting to raise money

Specsavers Winchester raised money for children’s charity, Naomi’s House by inviting children from the community in store for an afternoon of fun.

Face painting and story-telling

On Thursday 29th October, staff from Specsavers, located on the high street, treated children to a story-time session and face painting. Talented young artists were able to enter a colouring competition and all guests indulged in sweet treats from a cake sale. With £1 per entry, all proceeds went towards Naomi’s House and all children received a goody bag.

A word from the Specsavers Winchester store director

Specsavers Winchester store director, Malini Barchha said: ‘We’re delighted to have supported a fantastic local charity with our story-telling day.

‘It was a chance for children and parents in the community to come together and enjoy a fun reading session for a small donation, which went towards helping children and young adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.’
