A Specsavers employee from Chatham has pledged to raise £2000 and run the London Marathon for Phabkids, a charity that encourages and supports children and adults with and without disabilities to make more of life together.

Melissa, contact lens advisor at the Specsavers Chatham branch, organised a cake sell in store and is planning to do many more fundraising events to raise the necessary money to run the Marathon. She has so far raised £250.

'overwhelmed'  

Melissa said: 'I’m completely overwhelmed by the support received by the team and our customers and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated so far.

'Phabkids does a fantastic job and I am happy I can help them and the fantastic work they do.'
