Kenilworth turned back the clock and landed firmly in the 80’s for a themed fundraiser in aid of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).
Staff at Specsavers, 17 The Square, marked the end of National Eye Health Week on 29 September by donning their best 80’s gear and playing music from the decade on a vintage vinyl player. To further boost the fundraising total, the team offered an array of sweet treats for visitors in exchange for charitable donations, raising almost £200 for the RNIB.
A word from the store director
‘The whole team wanted to host a fundraiser to mark National Eye Health Week,’ said Kenilworth Specsavers store director, Ambreena Bhatti. ‘As Specsavers and RNIB have partnered for the awareness week for the last two years, they were a natural choice for our chosen charity. The 80’s theme seemed really popular and definitely brought a smile to people’s faces. Our local community are always hugely supportive, and we’d like to thank everyone who got involved on the day.’
250 people begin to lose their sight every day
RNIB offer help and support for blind and partially sighted people, ranging from practical and emotional support to campaigning for change and reading services. Every day 250 people begin to lose their sight. RNIB actively work towards changing perceptions of sight loss and giving those affected the help, support and tools they need to achieve their aspirations.
