Accrington staff had a few tricks and treats up their sleeves when they held a charity day in aid of Guide Dogs. Staff at the Cornhill store dressed up, held a tombola and sold cakes, cookies, fudge and homemade marmalades, raising £150 for the cause.

A great cause

Suzanne George, store director of Accrington Specsavers, commented: 'This event was a big hit with customers and we were delighted to raise this money for such a great cause.

Guide Dogs provides mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people as well as campaigning for the rights of people with visual impairment, educating the public about eyecare and funding eye disease research.
