Members of the team from Cheltenham Specsavers continued the store’s community outreach programme and visited the Second Pitville (Salem) Rainbows Group, to deliver a fun yet educational session.

The youngsters, aged between five and seven, got involved with activities set up by PR coordinator Emily Ashman, which included colour coordinating animal’s eyes and ears to the right animal.

Emily took two members of the team with her, including apprentice, Molly Taylor and Natalie-Lawson-Lee who is working at the store as part of the Going the Extra Mile (GEM) project.

Connecting with local community 

‘We had a great session with the Rainbows, they were a pleasure to work with,’ said Emily.

‘As well as playing some games, we got the girls to try on specs which they seemed to enjoy. We’re passionate about getting out and about into the local community and this is just one of the ways we can do this. It was also a good experience for Molly as part of her development on the apprenticeship scheme.’
