The Ayr opticians has raised more than £280 for charities and good causes in the past year.

The store held a number of fundraising events in 2017, with proceeds donated to charities including Hearing Dogs, Kidscape, Vision Aid Overseas and Cash for Kids.

Christmas gift appeal

As well as holding a Christmas Jumper Day to raise funds for Cash for Kids, the store also acted as a drop off point for the charity’s Mission Christmas gift appeal.

Cash for Kids is the official charity of West FM, supporting disabled and disadvantaged children in Ayr and across West Scotland.

A word from the store director

Linda Fulton, store director at Specsavers in Ayr, says: ‘We’d like to thank our customers and staff for supporting our fundraising appeals and raising money for four very worthwhile causes.

‘Supporting Cash for Kids was a great way to spread a little Christmas cheer by helping children across the area.’
