Specsavers in Batley gave customers the chance to win back the cost of any glasses bought in December by hosting a charitable raffle.

Every customer who bought glasses during the month could pay £1 for a raffle ticket to be entered into a draw to win. The store also hosted a colouring competition for children to enter.

The store made £52 from both activities.

All money raised from raffle ticket sales is being put towards buying a defibrillator for Batley Town Centre.

A word from the store director

Paul Smith, store director for Specsavers in Batley, said: ‘We wanted to give our customers a treat this Christmas, so what better way than to win the cost of their glasses back so they could enjoy some extra festive treats.

‘We’re hoping to raise as much as we can in order to put towards much needed funds buying a defibrillator for Batley Town Centre, and the money raised from the raffle was a great start.

'It’s so important to have such a key piece of life-saving equipment that is accessible, so we’re urging the community to get involved.’
