Specsavers in Milton Keynes sponsored the annual Midnight Moo event this year, donating the t-shirts worn by all the participants.

The event saw 1000 women, including four staff members from Specsavers, walking across Milton Keynes to raise money for local charity, Willen Hospice.

Store director of Milton Keynes, Steve Moore also volunteers at the hospice, by sitting on the board as their retail representative, overseeing events and the nine shops in around the town. He said: ‘Willen Hospice do an amazing job, not only with in-patients, but also the outreach work they do, which strives to keep people suffering from end-of-life conditions at home for as long as possible.

Supporting the community

‘As a local business, it’s so important for us to be a part of our community and support these fantastic causes whenever we can.’

The opticians and hearing specialists also held a bake sale to raise money for the event, which raised an extra £100 on the day.
