The team at Specsavers Ludlow held a contact lens awareness week which also helped raise £64 for Megan Baker House.
The store took part in themed dress-up days which included professions, sport and occasions. These are all areas where specs wearers might want to consider using contacts as an alternative, whether that’s due to practical reasons or purely aesthetic.
As well as talking to customers about the different contact lens options available, members of the team were able to chat about Megan Baker House which provides conductive education sessions for children and adults with motor disorders.
A word from the store director
‘It was great to be able to combine an awareness week with some fundraising,’ said store director, Nicola Aubrey. ‘As well as carrying out specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) in return for donations, customers very generously also just popped money into our collection tins. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us throughout the week.’
Megan Baker House caters for children and adults with motor disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Dyspraxia, Parkinson's disease, stroke and acquired brain injury. Through conductive education, participants learn how to manage and deal with the difficulties caused by their condition to enable them to lead a more independent life.
