The team in Crewe went the extra mile with an in-store fitness day, complete with exercise equipment, raising over £200 for three invaluable local causes.

All of the staff worked up a sweat by donning gym wear and ‘travelling’ over 100 miles on exercise bikes, stepper machines and a rowing machine without leaving the store, all in aid of St Luke’s Hospice, Climb and the Iris Vision Resource Centre in Crewe.

Three Peaks challenge

The team are using this as a warm-up for when they tackle the Three Peak challenge across June, July and August this year, for which they have already raised £535 towards charity.

With the extra support of the Nantwich Specsavers store collectively, the team is aiming to raise their target goal of £6,000 with a whole host of fundraising over the next couple of months.

Working up a sweat 

Store director Michael Elleray said: ‘Everyone in store has always tried to think of big, creative new ways to raise money for charity so we decided that we wanted to aim as high as we could with the Three Peak challenge.

‘I’d like to thank everyone who came down to the fitness day and very kindly donated to not one, but three very important causes. ’

‘Everyone in the store is really pushing ourselves to raise as much money as we can.’
