Specsavers in Eltham will be raising money as part of Brain Tumour Research’s ‘Wear a Hat Day’, to show their backing for a local resident who lost her husband to the disease.
Glenn McMahon Foundation
Mottingham local, Wendy McMahon lost her husband, Glenn, in June 2015 and since then has endeavoured to raise as much money and awareness of the disease after setting up the Glenn McMahon Foundation.
On 29 March, members of the team in Eltham will all be wearing a hat in exchange for a donation to the charity and will be collecting money from members of the public.
Wendy will also be in attendance to discuss her experiences and encourage people to get checked up as soon as they notice anything out-of-the-ordinary.
Specsavers store manager, Richard Ford, said: ‘When we were approached by Wendy, we were obviously heartbroken by her story but wanted to do all we could to help.
‘We would love to be able to raise as much money as possible for this wholly worthwhile cause and would encourage our customers to donate as generously as they always do to make sure that we can make a difference.’
