As part of National Eye Health Week Specsavers in March will be hosting a vintage tea day, to raise money for the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB).

The event will take place on Friday 28 September with the store being decorated in bunting and staff members dressing up in vintage clothing from a range of eras across history. Cakes will be on sale for customers to buy and a raffle will be available to win a free pair of glasses worth £99.

A fun and tasty way to raise awareness

Store director at Specsavers in March, Trevor Clark, said: ‘It is so important to raise awareness of the importance of eye health and our tea party is a fun and tasty way of doing this.

‘A sight test doesn’t just check prescriptions, it can detect more serious eye issues such as glaucoma and age-related macular degenerations, along with other medical conditions from blood-pressure issues, to diabetes and brain tumours. That’s why we suggest everyone gets their eyes tested at least every two years or if they experience blurring, flashes or headaches.’

You’re invited

Specsavers in March invites the public to come into the store for a cup of tea and slice of cake and looks forward to seeing them there.

National Eye Health Week is a country-wide campaign running from Monday 24 to Sunday 30 September.
