Hemel Hempstead eyecare experts are celebrating two decades in the community by turning back the clocks and hosting a week-long children’s festival in store.

Throughout the week, the store will also be collecting donations from older visitors in return for complimentary specs MOTs.

A word from the store director 

Daniel Harris, store director at Specsavers in Hemel Hempstead, said: ‘On this landmark occasion, we wanted to celebrate with the community which has been our home for two decades. Not only that, we wanted to use the opportunity to give back, and what better cause than Hope for Children. We hope to see lots of new and familiar faces in store during our half term celebration and fingers crossed we raise a fine sum for the charity.’
