Families in Hammersmith were invited to celebrate a very special joint birthday party at a local opticians on Saturday 31 May and helped to raise over £450 for West London Action For Children. 

Store birthday party

Specsavers in Hammersmith, located at 29 Kingsmall, and one of the world’s best-loved monsters, The Gruffalo are both marking their 15th anniversary this year.

To celebrate the occasion and launch the new Gruffalo children’s eyewear range, Specsavers Hammersmith invited local families to a birthday party at the store, complete with cakes, balloons and a prize draw.

Perfect way to convey the imporatance of children's eye health

Rita Francis, store director at Specsavers Hammersmith said: ‘The day was an incredible success and I’m so glad we were able to share the celebrations with so many local children and parents.

It was fantastic to see so many children engaged with eyecare as it’s essential to their development. The birthday party setting was a perfect way to convey the importance of children’s eye health to local families.

Thank you to everyone that attended and donated to West London Action For Children. We were thrilled to raise such a substantial amount for the charity.’
