Specsavers is thrilled to arrive in Godalming, and to mark the new store launch, some special furry VIPs were on-hand!
Much-loved charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, dropped by for the first official day of trading. Residents welcomed the opportunity to meet two Guide Dogs - one, a 7ft character and the other, the real thing! Representatives from the charity were also available to talk to locals about their sterling work.
Says store director...
Mark Dunn, the new director at Specsavers in Godalming says: 'Our VIP guests were a great hit with people of all ages and we received some very generous donations for this great charity on launch day.
'We have been here for nearly a month now, and the response has been incredible. We have had lots of locals pop by to tell us the history of the store and people couldn't have been more welcoming. We have plenty of community sponsorships and partnerships coming up which we will be sharing with everyone very soon.
'Godalming is a thriving, close-knit community and we are thrilled to be a part of it.'
