Specsavers Dagenham held a raffle in aid of the National Autistic Society to mark Autism Awareness Week this year.

And the store, in Heathway Shopping Centre, raised £86.70 to help the charity fund the vital work it does with people with autism and their families.

A word from the store director

Gurjit Singh Sehmi, store director in Dagenham, said: ‘We were delighted to be able to support such a good cause, and would like to thank our customers for their generosity.

‘Every little really does help, so why not drop your spare change into one of our charity boxes in store today.’
