Two customers at Specsavers in Leighton Buzzard had a lucky strike after winning a competition in aid of a children’s charity.

Charity fundraising

John Faulkner and Betty Minter were both awarded Easter-themed prizes by staff at the store as part of an in-store fundraiser and bake sale, which raised £144 for children’s hospice, the Pepper Foundation.

Thank you

Store director Ekta Kotecha said: ‘We are very proud of our fundraising achievements here at Specsavers. We love to host in-store fundraisers and take part in activities in the name of charity, and our competition and bake sale was a great way to raise funds for The Pepper Foundation.

‘One behalf of the store I’d like to congratulate John and Betty, and thank Shrey Kotecha, Willis Flowers and The Party Shop for their help in making our fundraiser a great success. We’d also like to thank everyone who visited us in store and contributed to our fundraising total.

'Without their help we wouldn’t be able to support The Pepper Foundation in continuing its vital work for families at the time when they need it most.’
