Members of staff from Specsavers in Brownhills marked the UK’s first Face Equality Day (Friday 26 May) with an awareness day for Changing Faces.
Face Equality campaign
Joining hundreds of other UK businesses, the team wore Face Equality Butterflies for the day and encouraged customers to make a donation to the charity, which supports adults and children with facial disfigurements to live confident, happy lives.
Store director Justine Page said: ‘We’re absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to support the Face Equality campaign.
'Changing Faces is a charity discarding disfigurement prejudice and discrimination, helping people living with a condition that affects appearance.
‘Their message is one that resonates with all of us in store – that everyone is treated fairly and equally whatever the appearance of their face or body.’
Founded in 1992, Changing Faces works with people who have a disfigurement find a way to live the life they want. The UK charity offers confidential information and advice, supported by hundreds of volunteers across the country, including professionals from psychology, social work, counselling and teaching.
