Specsavers Barking took part in Wear a Hat Day for the charity Brain Tumour Research last month.

The annual charity awareness day is all about reminding people just how important research into the condition is.

A word from the store director

Sonia Persand, store director in Barking, said: ‘Brain Tumour Research is a really good cause, which we were happy to support as a store.

‘A brain tumour can sometimes be detected through a routine eye test, so making sure that you have one regularly really counts.’
