Staff at the Bridgnorth store welcomed three lucky winners to collect their prizes as part of its seventh birthday festivities. 

Customers who visited Specsavers on Saturday 20 September for the store’s seventh birthday could enter a raffle to win a designer pair of specs, and a ‘guess how many treats in the jar’ competition. Youngsters also took part in a colouring competition where a box of Thornton chocolates was up for grabs. 

The team picked the winners at random, declaring Kathryn Norgrove as the recipient of the designer glasses. Bella Walker Marshall won the jar of sweeties by correctly guessing how many there were, but has decided to donate it to Bridgnorth Hospital. Margaret Veal is the president of the League of Friends coffee shop and will be accepting the sweets from Bella on behalf of the hospital, and will give out the sweets to patients. Nine-year-old Emily Ashling won the colouring competition. 

‘Our seventh birthday was a huge success, with so many of our loyal customers joining us in the fun,’ said Teresa Hughes, store director. ‘We want to thank everyone who came along to the store and took part in the competitions; I hope the winners enjoy their prizes!’

In its seven years at the heart of the community, Specsavers has supported many local people and charities. The store next plans to donate high visibility jackets to local school children during Road Safety Week (17-23 November), helping them to stay safe as the nights begin to get darker.
