Specsavers in Hounslow was turned into a sea of colour last month as staff joined the local community in celebrating Diwali.

Members of the team were encouraged to dress up in traditional clothing in honour of the festival of lights, which is celebrated by millions of Hindus across the world.

Those taking part in the occasion from the store included contact lens supervisor Harminder Virdee and hearcare assistant Gurleen Brar.

A word from the store director

Sim Gujral, store director at Specsavers Hounslow, said: ‘We serve a wide and diverse range of people in Hounslow from many different backgrounds and faiths and we also have members of staff who follow the Hindu faith, so we were proud to support by hosting our own Diwali celebrations in store.’
