Specsavers in Kenilworth supported their local community at the annual Kenilworth Lions Grand Show.
In-store merchandiser, Sophie Callaghan, spent the day handing out goody bags with free frisbees and speaking to the local community about the importance of eye tests. In addition, Sophie began a ‘name the bear’ competition, in a bid to raise as much as possible for Myton Hospice, which will continue in store.
The event took place at Abbey Fields where several stalls represented other local businesses and charities. Members of the local community enjoyed games, live music and live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
A word from the store director
Store director, Ambreena Bhatti, said: ‘Events like this are a great way to raise awareness of the important work carried out by local businesses such as ours. It was also an important opportunity for us to remind residents about the professional optical and hear care services we provide.’
Myton Hospice is a local charity with hospices and shops in Coventry, Warwick and Rugby. Last year they supported more than 1,400 people and their families, through their patient and family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home.
