The team at Specsavers on Queen Street swapped uniforms for capes as part of a superhero-themed fundraising day for children’s charity Cerebra.

Dress-up day

Staff raised £61.40 for the charity, which supports children with brain conditions and their families, by dressing up as their favourite superheroes, such as Superman and Captain America.

Customers also bought raffle tickets, with prizes including Marvel-themed sticker pads, beach towels and toys.

Sara Mozaffar, manager at Specsavers Cardiff Queen Street, says: ‘As usual, our regular customers were happy to donate generously and play their part in supporting Cerebra. It was great fun.’

Crucial support

Headquartered in Carmarthen, Cerebra aims to improve the lives of children with neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy and ADHD, by providing practical and emotional support to them and their families and funding relevant research.

At the Cerebra Innovation Centre, bespoke equipment is designed and created for children with neurological conditions.

Sara adds: ‘The support provided by Cerebra is crucial for children in Cardiff and without donations like this the charity wouldn’t be able to do the great work it does. Our customers’ generosity helps to make a difference to lives so thank you to everyone who donated.’
