Specsavers staff at the local store in Arbroath pledged their support to lung cancer charity Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, raising more than £530.

The store donated £1 per sight test from 15 – 22 July, as part of a charity fundraising week in honour of Specsavers director, Tom Simpson, who sadly died in March 2018 after battling lung cancer.

Staff also took part in a ‘pie your colleague’ event, making a donation for the chance to throw a cream pie at a fellow member of staff.

In Tom’s memory

Following an initial 12-month prognosis, Tom, from Stonehaven, fought lung cancer for more than four years with the support of his wife Jan, and two children, Camille (15) and Blake (11).

Determined to make each day count, Tom worked tirelessly to raise awareness for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation while highlighting the lack of funding available to investigate and treat the disease.
