The Greenock opticians has raised more than £1,300 in aid of several charities last year.

Staff at the store held fundraising events in support of Children in Poverty Inverclyde, Hearing Dogs and Ardgowan Hospice.

The team raised more than £830 for Ardgowan by participating in its Jingle Bell Jog and wearing Christmas Jumpers every weekend in December.

Vital causes

Jonathan Dry, store director at Specsavers in Greenock, says: ‘Supporting vital local causes is a huge focus for our store and we’re delighted to have raised more than £1,000 over the course of last year.

‘Raising funds for Ardgowan Hospice has been very important and we’re looking forward to participating in more fundraising events in aid of the hospice this year.’
