A word from the store director


Specsavers Whitby Store Director, Sophie Harland, comments: ‘Specsavers has long been a champion of Comic Relief, and it’s certainly a very significant part of the year when it comes to our fundraising efforts in Whitby. The staff can’t wait for it to come around every year!


‘It was great to see just how creative the staff’s baking efforts were and they must have been tasty too given how generous customers were with donations for the bake sale. Their treats were a firm favourite of customers and staff alike.’
