Staff at Specsavers on Queen Street, Cardiff, have raised more than £80 for Guide Dogs.

Raising money

Members of the pre-test team, including Zara Nosratpour, Jess Booth and Sharon Llewellyn, collected money through the sale of official guide dog pin badges to customers, which has raised a total of £81 for the charity.

Funding research

The charity has trained guide dogs for more than 75 years to provide support to the blind and partially sighted, and it aims to educate the public about eyecare and fund eye disease research. Specsavers has supported Guide Dogs for more than 10 years.

Frank Moloney, director at Specsavers in Cardiff, said: ‘Every hour another person in the UK loses their sight, which is why we think it is so important to support a charity like Guide Dogs as it enables visually impaired people to retain their independence.

‘The aims of both Guide Dogs and Specsavers are closely aligned as we promote and champion the importance of eyecare, so we’re always eager to support the charity when we can. I’d like to thank our customers for buying the pin badges and donating to Guide Dogs.’
