Specsavers in Morpeth were ‘in the pink’ as they linked together to support World Cancer Day.

Customers and staff at the store raised funds by buying pink ‘Unity Band’ bracelets, with which staff joined themselves together during the day.

A word from the organiser
Sandra Arkle, a former cancer sufferer and a dispensing assistant at the Morpeth store helped to organise the day’s events. She said: ‘We “Linked in Pink” to really make the point that supporting those with cancer is a very important part of the fight against the disease. As well as selling the Unity Bands we sold cakes and beautiful hand-made soft specs cases which had been designed and made by Stephanie Booth our store manager’.

A word from the director
Ross Jennings, store director of Specsavers in Morpeth, said: ‘Support and smiling is so important for keeping spirits up for anyone tackling this terrible disease. Everyone made sure we put the “fun” into our ‘fun-draising’ day

‘Linked in Pink raised lots of laughs and really made the point about being there for one another. We were proud to raise £152.16 and would like to thank everyone who supported us by buying cakes, cases and bracelets. These sums all add up and can really make a difference.’
