The team at Chingford Specsavers, conveniently located on 26 Old Church Road, would like to congratulate Jo Marsdon on qualifying as a dispensing optician.

Jo, who previously worked as a supervisor and optical assistant at the store, has been part of Specsavers for many years.

Vishal Jetha, director at Specsavers in Chingford, says: ‘The whole team are extremely proud of Jo and what she’s achieved. She’ll be a great dispensing optician.’

Tough challenge

Speaking about her recent qualification, Jo says: ‘I’m so pleased to have qualified and now be a dispensing optician at the Chingford store.

‘I passed via the fast track route so it was very challenging. It was a lot of hard work in a short space of time but I had full support from the store directors, Rupa Hina Bhudia and Vishal Jetha, who were always on hand to help.’

Jo says: ‘When I finally graduated I received my certificates at Canterbury Cathedral, which was an amazing experience!’
