The team at Specsavers in Warminster have raised £1,135 for Cancer Research UK by walking a collective total of 1,695,481 steps in the month of March.
As part of the fundraising initiative, Walk All Over Cancer, store director, Martyn Thomas; store manager, Alison Edwards; assistant store manager, Amanda Kells; and optical consultant Simon Reeves, each walked a minimum of 10,000 steps a day to raise money for the charity.
A great effort
Martyn Thomas said: ‘Generally everyone has been affected by cancer in some way and so we’re thrilled to have raised £1,135 for life-saving cancer research by stepping up to this challenge. Under the team name “Specs Appeal” we collected donations for sponsorship in-store, as well created individual JustGiving pages online to really boost the fundraising drive. I’d like to personally thank the Specsavers team members who took part in the challenge, as well as everyone who donated to this great cause.’
