The team at Specsavers in Brownhills raised more than £70 for an international children’s charity on Friday 16 December with festive jumpers and Christmas treats.
Members of staff donated money to wear their favourite festive knitwear, and invited the local community to indulge in a range of Christmas-themed baked goods to raise additional funds for Save the Children.
A brilliant cause
Store director Justine Page commented: ‘Christmas is an enjoyable time of year for so many, but it’s important to remember that there are vulnerable children around the world who are experiencing real hardship. While we’re having fun in store to raise funds, we must remember what those funds are for.
‘We’ve been delighted by the warm response of our local community and would like to thank everyone who came along on Friday to donate towards such a brilliant cause. The work that Save the Children does is so important, and we hope that the money raised will make a real difference in the lives of children who need it the most.’
