Furry customer

Specsavers in Alton welcomed one of its furriest customers into the store for a day of fundraising to support Guide Dogs on Friday 10 October.

Staff from Specsavers in Alton invited a puppy from the Guide Dogs charity into the store. To help raise money staff wore their most fluorescent outfits and donated money to support the charity.

In a bid to help raise precious funds the store also donated £1 for every eye test completed on the day to the charity.

Fantastic work in the community

Lee Johnston, store director at Specsavers Alton, says: ‘Guide Dogs does a lot of fantastic work in the community and we were delighted that we had the chance to invite Cooper into the store to raise awareness.

‘We were very excited to host the pup at the store and to enjoy some cake on the day. I would like to thank the local people of Alton for their generosity and for joining us for a day of fun.’

Guide Dogs is the UK’s largest charity to provide assistance dogs for blind and partially sighted people.

The charity has given more than 29,000 people the chance to live a more independent life since it was established in 1931.

Specsavers stores are raising money as part of a nationwide initiative to raise £250,000 to support 25 puppies from training to qualification.
