The Specsavers opticians in Palmers Green recently raised funds for Guide Dogs during their annual Guide Dogs awareness week, thanks to donations from customers and residents.

A word from the store director

Jaswinder Singh Nagra, store director said: ‘A Guide Dog costs around £50,000 throughout its life, and provides priceless mobility and freedom to someone who is blind or partially sighted. As eyecare specialists, we’re proud that the money raised in store will help to create more of these important partnerships. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and donated.’
