First, let me take a selfie
Specsavers in Worcester helped celebrate 100 years of the charity’s work helping blind ex-Service men and women, by encouraging donations in the store. Staff encouraged customers to take a selfie using the props provided, for a small donation to the charity.
Store director, Alan Richards, said: ‘The charity is currently supporting more than 4,000 blind veterans and with our help, they hope to reach their target of recruiting 700 new beneficiaries in the coming year.’
