Palmers Green eyecare experts championed Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the borough, raising a three figure sum for charity.

The team from Specsavers in Palmers Green raised £279.85 for Breast Cancer Care through a ten-day drive in-store.

During the initiative team members collected donations from the community, while £1 from every free eye test carried out in store was donated to the charity.

A word from the store director

Jaswinder Singh Nagra, store director at Specsavers in Palmers Green, said: ‘One person is diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every ten minutes and for ten days this October we went the extra mile to support those affected by this disease, which touches so many lives.

‘Thank you to everyone who showed their support and to the team who so passionately championed the cause.’
