The team at Specsavers in Bridgnorth has been raising awareness for sight loss charity, the Royal National Institute for the Blind, with an over 60’s coffee and cake morning on Thursday 26th May.
Cake and coffee for special cause
Customers and passers-by were invited to enjoy a piece of cake and a cup of tea or coffee, whilst raising much needed funds and awareness for the national charity, which provides both practical and emotional support to people affected by sight loss.
The Royal National Institute for the Blind was founded in 1868 by Dr Thomas Rhodes Armitage and work throughout the UK with those who are losing their sight, are blind or are partially sighted, offering advice regarding staying in employment to help with everyday tasks.
Store director, Teresa Hughes, commented: ‘We are delighted to be supporting the RNIB as our nominated charity and equally delighted to get our local community involved. Obviously this is a cause very close to us at Specsavers, and the coffee and cake morning was a great opportunity to tell people about how they can contribute and the support that is available if they need it.’
