The team at Havant has upped its fundraising stakes by raising vital funds for the Rays of Sunshine Children’s charity.
Week of fundraising
Staff from Specsavers, located at 36-38 West Street, hosted a week of fundraising activities, including a children’s colouring competition to win a hamper of goodies, and a raffle with prizes including cream tea for two at Lavender Tea Rooms and lunch for two at La Bonne Baguette in Havant.
Bill Vance, store director said: ‘Rays of Sunshine is a fantastic children’s charity, and our staff are very excited to get involved. Our week of fundraising activities is a great opportunity for us to raise money and increase awareness of the young people who are suffering with life limiting diseases'.
‘We would like to thank our customers for their generosity.’
Granting children's wishes
The Rays of Sunshine Children’s charity was formed in 2003 to support children who are living with serious or life-limiting illnesses between the ages of 3 and 18, across the United Kingdom. The charity does this by helping to grant children's wishes and organising events and outings for large groups of seriously ill children such as a trip to Legoland and the Sunshine Concert.
