Highland Hospice has received a cash boost from Specsavers in Inverness after a festive fundraiser.

Specsavers Inverness organised a raffle in store throughout December to raise money for the hospice, which supports people, their families and carers. For every £1 ticket purchased, customers were entered into a prize draw to win a hamper of chocolates, biscuits and sweet treats.

Mrs McCubbin was the lucky winner of the raffle which raised £72.

Proud to support Highland Hospice

Andrew Carr, store director of Specsavers in Inverness, said: 'We’ve always been proud to support the Highland Hospice and usually hold an annual fundraiser for the charity every year. We’d like to thank everyone who purchased a ticket for our raffle which enabled us to make a donation to such a worthy local cause.'

Specsavers stores are still open for all eye and hearing needs during the latest lockdown phase. Under Scottish Government guidance, people may leave home to obtain medical assistance, including eye and hearing tests, which are considered essential healthcare services. If customers can’t leave home unaccompanied for an eye test, they can request a home visit from Specsavers instead.
