Specsavers in Beaumont Leys spent National Eye Health Week (24-30 September) raising funds for the RNIB and speaking to customers about the importance of eye health.
To celebrate the annual awareness week, run by the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB), for every sight test during the week the store donated £1 to the charity. To further boost the fundraising total, staff offered specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) in exchange for donations.
A word from the store director
‘We couldn’t let this week go by without supporting the RNIB,’ said store director, Robert Williams. ‘As well as encouraging all sorts of fundraising activity across the UK, National Eye Health Week highlights the importance of caring for your eyes and having regular sight tests is a huge part of that.
‘We recommend you have your eyes tested every two years or sooner if you notice a problem. Sight tests can provide a vital early warning for a number of eye conditions, as well as other medical conditions, so it is not just about whether you need glasses or a new prescription.’
