Staff at Specsavers in Brighouse donned their scariest fancy dress for Halloween to raise money for charity.

Family fun

The practice took part in the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice Halloween Trail which saw stores in the area come together to give the local community a fun family day out. They also ditched their uniforms and instead dressed up in their best Halloween outfits, which included skeletons, witches and vampires.

‘We were really glad to have been part of this year’s community Halloween trail,’ said Gareth Hart, store director at Specsavers Brighouse.

‘It was great to see the children having fun on the trail, the team definitely enjoyed dressing up for the day!'

Providing care to children and families

The money raised from the fundraising went towards helping the hospice raise the £3.8 million needed each year to continue providing care to the children and families that they support in West Yorkshire.

This year’s Brighouse Halloween Trail fell during National Children’s Eye Health Month (24 October – 23 November), which gave parents the perfect opportunity to book their children in for an eye test. Ensuring children under the age of seven have their eyes tested at least once a year could potentially help to cure eye problems that in the future may not be as easy to resolve.
