To celebrate National Eye Health Week, which ran from Monday 24th – Sunday 30th this year, the Specsavers Luton team held a bake sale in-store for the RNIB.
About National Eye Health Week
National Eye Health Week is a yearly awareness campaign to promote the importance of eye health and the need for regular sight tests for all.
This year, the focus was on Britain’s aging population and the number of 65s still working.
To raise awareness of the importance of eye health, and raise funds for the RNIB, the Luton team decorated the store in RNIB balloons and held a bake sale in-store, managing to raise a fantastic £160.56 in total.
A word from the director
David Brett-Williams, store director at Luton, says of National Eye Health Week:
‘It’s worrying to find out how many residents in Bedfordshire are living with sight loss conditions. But the aim of National Eye Health Week is bring light to this and encourage more people to think seriously about their eyesight. Remember that you should be making an appointment with your optometrist once every two years – if you’re overview for an eye test, please do pop in and see us!
