Specsavers Canterbury are determined to give a local child a smile this Christmas – and are asking their customers to lend a helping hand.

The store is collecting new toys and donations for local children’s hospice charity Demelza Hospice Care for Children.

A word from the store director

Samantha Williams, store director in Canterbury, said: ‘Demelza Hospice is a really good cause which means an awful lot to many people across Kent and beyond.

‘We are really pleased that we are able to do our bit to help this Christmas, and would be delighted if our customers felt able to donate a toy or make a small donation too. Every little really does help.’
