Staff from Specsavers in Berwick put their fundraising efforts into overdrive recently by raising more than £400 for Guide Dogs for the Blind during a customer event in store.

Activities for all to enjoy

During the day there was a hive of activity and customers were invited to participate in fun activities such as a raffle and tombola when they visited the store. In addition to this fundraising day the store has also pledged to sponsor a kennel at the Berwick Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK).

Craig Bell, store director at Specsavers in Berwick, said: ‘We are delighted with the response from our fundraising event; all of our customers got behind our efforts and helped us raise such an impressive amount.

Guide Dogs do a great job in the area and we are really happy that we have been able to raise such a tremendous amount of money for the charity.

Supporting the local community is important to our store and that is why we are delighted to announce our BARK sponsorship.’
