Members of staff at Specsavers in Ludlow put the focus on fundraising in the run up to Christmas, raising more than £50 for Save the Children.
The team wore Christmas jumpers for a week, inviting customers and passers-by to donate to the children’s charity whilst showcasing their festive knitwear.
To boost the fundraising total, they offered specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) in return for charitable donations.
