Specsavers in Longbridge held a Halloween themed fundraiser for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) on Saturday 27 October, raising £30 for the charity.
The team dressed in their spookiest costumes and held a frightfully delicious cake sale, where customers could enjoy sweet treats for a £1 donation.
A word from the store director
‘Halloween is a great opportunity to have some fun and raise money for charity’, said Declan Casserly, store director at Specsavers in Longbridge. ‘The cake sale was a huge hit, we’d like to thank everyone who donated. Specsavers has worked in partnership with the RNIB for the last couple of years to raise awareness about the importance of having regular eye tests, so it was great to get involved in other ways and raise money for the charity.’
