A store manager from Forfar is taking to the skies to raise money to support people with sight loss.

Laura Stallerbrass is joining other Specsavers colleagues on 23 August to skydive out of a plane for a parachute jump to raise money for sight loss charity partners, Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

The thrill of a lifetime is marking the beginning of National Eye Health Week, during which Specsavers and RNIB ramp up their efforts in raising awareness of the importance of eye tests.

Fundraising in-store

The Specsavers store will also be supporting the efforts of Laura and her colleagues in the run-up to the event, as well as having sponsor forms in store for customers willing to donate to the cause.

Laura Stallerbrass said: ‘I am incredibly excited about doing The Big Jump, a little nervous of course, but it’s an experience of a lifetime and to be able to fundraise for such an important cause is an opportunity I just couldn’t turn down.’
