The Specsavers team in Monmouth turned back time to raise money to support people with sight loss.

To celebrate the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)’s 150th anniversary, the Monmouth Specsavers store hosted a vintage tea party.

‘Delicious cakes’ and decorations

The store was decorated with bunting and balloons, cups of tea and coffee were offered to customers and delicious cakes were brought in by staff to support the event. In total, £123.25 was raised for RNIB, which will provide vital funds for those suffering from sight loss.

The money raised will go towards providing free talking books, offering essential advice and support, as well as ensuring RNIB’s helpline can continue to run and make a difference to people’s lives.

Thanks for the support

Emily Anne-Frost, director at Specsavers in Monmouth, says: ‘We want to say a huge thank you to all our customers for coming out to support our vintage tea party and the incredible work of RNIB. The event was fun-filled and proved to be a huge success, with cakes flying off the tables throughout the day.’

Ansley Workman, director of RNIB Cymru, adds: ‘We’re delighted that Monmouth Specsavers took part in our vintage tea party to raise money for RNIB in the year of our 150th anniversary. The money they have raised will enable us to continue helping people living with sight loss face the future with confidence.’
