An extra dose of festive cheer was brought to Hartlepool recently, as many businesses, including Specsavers, took part in a Christmas campaign in aid of Save the Children.

The team at Specsavers Hartlepool, located in Middleton Grange, donned their novelty winter woollies on Friday 14 December for Christmas Jumper Day.

A word from the store director

Ian Walker, director at Specsavers Hartlepool, said: ‘The team here in Hartlepool loved sporting their festive knitwear to help spread some merriment to our visitors and collect for this great cause.

‘We’d like to thank everyone for their contributions on Friday and also to our customers for their support all year round.

'We look forward to welcoming you all back in the New Year.’
