Specsavers Diss has kicked off its fundraising for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) by transforming into a sea of dots, in a charity day full of cakes, games and prizes that raised a total of £288.

Eye on the prize

The staff hosted the dot-themed day to highlight the importance of Braille on behalf of the RNIB, who support those with sight loss and their loved ones. 

The store raised funds through games, with prizes ranging from Elizabeth Arden beauty gift sets and giant Lego play sets. They also hosted a bake sale with homemade cakes from staff and gave out goody bags and balloons for younger party-goers. 

Champion charity

Sophie McGregor, the stores in-store trainer, who organised the day, says: 'The RNIB is our champion charity for the year. It's such an important cause, especially to the team here at Specsavers Diss. We spend every day working with people to promote healthy vision and prevent sight loss where possible, so we highly respect and want to highlight the excellent work the charity does.

'It was great to see the community come together on the day to donate and go dotty! Thanks to all the donations the RNIB will be able to continue their vital work.'
