Widnes staff think pink for charity
The staff in Widnes Specsavers will encourage customers to ‘Think pink’ for the day on 18 October as they do their part to spread the word and fundraise during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
On Sunday 18 October, the team in Widnes will swap out their uniforms and come to work dressed in their wackiest pink costumes to welcome their customers to the store.
While The Great British Bake Off may be over, the Widnes gang are still hoping to show off their culinary skills by holding a cake sale in aid of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The budding Nigella Lawsons and Mary Berrys are donating all the money made from the sale to Breast Cancer Care.
There’s also fun to be had for the children of Widnes, as they can take part in Specsavers’ contest to guess how many sweets are in the jar – where the winning guess will walk away with the treats.
The fun day is open to everyone in Widnes and will last from 10am until 4pm at the newly refitted store on Albert Road.
Raising awareness in Widnes
Angela Perls, the dispensing director at Widnes said; ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an incredibly important time of the year, as we can raise vital funds to help make a difference while making sure people have all the information about breast cancer that they need.
‘Many of us in the Widnes store know someone who has been affected by this illness, and that’s why we’ve decided to host this fun day. We hope we can encourage people to call in to the store and try some of our baked goods while doing their part for this wonderful cause.’
Specsavers in Widnes will be collecting donations from customers throughout October in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
