To help spread some Valentine’s love in the town, Specsavers hosted a raffle with all proceeds going to community-run charities across Oban.

The George Street opticians has pledged to focus all its fundraising this year on supporting local causes and organisations run by the community.

The first fundraiser of the year was the raffling of a Valentine’s themed hamper for the perfect movie night in.

Tickets cost £1 each with one lucky winner receiving a hamper including prosecco, chocolates, popcorn and a £15 Netflix voucher.

Fundraising focused on our town

Ken Macdonald, store director at Specsavers Oban, said: ‘There are so many great charity organisations and facilities that are all owned and run by the community in Oban. We wanted to focus our fundraising on them and it’s great to kick start the pot with £36 from our Valentine’s raffle.

‘We hope to raise a great sum throughout the year which will then be divided amongst various causes in the town.’
