The team at Specsavers Bingham are appealing to the local community to help them decide their charity of the year for 2018.

The store is asking people to nominate local charities or causes that they think most deserve to receive fundraising support from the store for the next 12 months.

A word from the optical director

‘Having been made to feel so welcome in Bingham since the store opened last February, we would like to encourage people to nominate a cause that they feel deserves our backing,’ said optical director Amit Rana.

‘It could be for an individual who needs treatment for an illness, or for a charity that needs new equipment or services.

‘This is a great opportunity for us to engage further with the local community and help those who need it most. If you know of a cause in need, we’d be very grateful to hear from you.’

To nominate a local cause, please send your written nomination to the store at 13 Eaton Place, Bingham, Nottingham NG13 8BD, or pop into the store in person. Entries are open until Friday 16 February 2018, and the chosen charity will be announced shortly after.
