Two members of staff from Specsavers in Ludlow went the extra mile for charity by taking part in an inflatable obstacle course, raising almost £300 for Severn Hospice.

Store supervisors, Rebecca Lewis and Bethan Edwards, donned their capes and joined locals at the West Mid Showground for the 5k superhero themed course; Kapow! 

‘It was certainly challenging in the heat,’ said Rebecca. ‘However, despite the shining sun, we completed the course with pride in our superhero attire. The support from spectators and other participants was great and it spurred us on to keep running.

‘We’d like to say a huge thank you to our family, friends and customers, who have helped us raise almost £300 for Severn Hospice. We hope our donation helps the charity continue supporting families in the community.’ 

‘We’re extremely proud of Becky and Bethan for taking part in the 5k,’ said store director, Nicola Aubrey. ‘They reflect our strong and dedicated team here at Specsavers in Ludlow, who are always willing to go above and beyond when it comes to charity.’

Severn Hospice provides specialist care and support free of charge to families across Shropshire and Mid Wales who are living with an incurable illness. The charity believes that when a cure is no longer possible, care is. Since 1989, they have supported more than 27,000 patients and their loved ones during times of need.
