Kicking off National Eye Health week this week with a bang, the team at Hucknall have a host of fundraising activities planned to raise vital funds in support of Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

Fundraising activities 

Staff will be fundraising throughout the week, selling raffle tickets for £1 per strip to customers with the chance of winning a basket filled with prizes, including a pair of the new range Cath Kidson specs, in their choice of sunglasses or single vision lenses, chocolates and optical goodies.

The team will also be holding a cake sale on Friday 23rd September, donating £1 from every sight test throughout the National Eye Health Week, and MOTing glasses in return for donations throughout September.

A new mission

Janet Archer, Specsavers Hucknall store director, commented: ‘It’s astonishing that so many people are needlessly living with or at risk of sight loss in the UK today. Half of all sight loss cases are preventable – and a simple eye test can be the first step in prevention.

‘Our mission together with RNIB is to transform the nation’s eye health through education, awareness and action; we want to reverse these worrying eye health trends that are putting unnecessary pressure on the health service and placing a massive burden on the public purse.’

The partnership comes at an exciting time, with recent findings from RNIB and Specsavers’ State of the Nation: Eye Health Report 2016 which emphasises the need for greater awareness about eye health in the UK and in promoting prevention through education.
