Surbiton opticians gears up for charity drive
Surbiton eyecare experts are raising funds for a Teddington-based Down’s Syndrome charity as part of a double celebration for their store's fifth anniversary and the Surbiton Festival.
Specsavers in Surbiton, located at 2 Surbiton Parade, is toasting the town with hot chocolate and cake and collecting donations for the Down’s Syndrome Association on Saturday 27 September.
A word from the store director
Jay Patel, store director at Specsavers in Surbiton, said: ‘We’re thrilled to be celebrating five years in the community, and we can think of no better way of marking the occasion than by raising money for one of our wonderful locally-based charities. We’re looking forward to the carnival atmosphere in the shopping parade on festival day and we hope to see some new and familiar faces. If you’re in the area, why not pop by and show your support.’
What's on offer
On the day, the store will be offering visitors hot chocolate in a mug and muffins donated by Greggs in exchange for a charitable donation between 10am-4pm. Little ones who stop by on the day will also be given their own water bottle to take home.
