The team at Specsavers Barking will be supporting Wear a Hat Day on Thursday 29 March, and are encouraging customers to come down and join in the fun at the East Street store on the day or beforehand.

They could even win a great prize – a free pair of glasses or a special hamper – in a charity raffle. The annual charity awareness day, held by the charity Brain Tumour Research, seeks to raise awareness of the condition.

A word from the store director

Shivani Maharaj, ophthalmic director in Barking, said: ‘Brain Tumour Research is a terrific charity and we really want to do our bit to help.

‘So why not pop down and see us and buy a raffle ticket. For just £1 you could win a pair of glasses or sunglasses, or our special hamper. We look forward to seeing you in store.’
