Staff at Specsavers in Banstead did their bit to help out their furry friends by hosting a fundraising day during Guide Dogs Awareness Week.

All dressed up

Staff at the store dressed up in their best neon clothes to raise awareness for the charity, which breeds and trains dogs to provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people.

The team also baked a selection of cakes and biscuits to sell to customers who popped in for their sight test, and sold Guide Dogs pin badges to raise a total of £64.20 for the worthwhile cause.

Improving lives

Glen MacGregor, store director at Specsavers Banstead, said: “It is so important to raise awareness of the fantastic work that Guide Dogs do, and to highlight to the local community just how big a role these dogs play in improving the lives of those who are visually impaired.

‘Staff at the store did a fantastic job at raising vital funds for the charity, which recognises that every donation goes a long way to supporting the work they do.’
