Specsavers in Northampton has pledged to support Dunstone Bennett Complementary Centre (DB Centre) for the year, a charity that supports a person’s mind and body through their cancer journey.
To kick things off, Specsavers on Abington Street is hosting a fundraising day on Saturday 7 April. The team will be greeting customers and passers-by with a cake sale, tombola and raffle. Tickets for the raffle are currently available in store and winners will be announced on the day. There will also be a colouring competition, kids treasure hunt and face painting to entertain the youngsters.
Store manager at Specsavers Northampton, Rebecca Wright, recently became a trustee for the DB Centre. ‘This cause is very close to my heart,’ said Rebecca. ‘After seeing first-hand the positivity that my dad gained through the centre, I wanted to give something back to this amazing cause.’
Store director, Marinos Constantinides, commented: ‘At Specsavers in Northampton, we understand the difficulties people and their families face with cancer, so supporting this charity was a cause we all bought into. We hope the local community will get behind us on what should be a fun day with lots happening.’
Using therapies to positively support mind and body through the cancer journey, the DB Centre is available for anyone being treated at Northampton General Hospital, their loved ones and carers at any stage of their cancer journey.
