A word from the store director

Jaswinder Singh Nagra, store director at Specsavers in Palmers Green, said: ‘We are pleased that the cash raised from our free eye tests in May will go towards supporting the invaluable work of the hospice. It is important that the hospice is able to continue to provide vital support to those in our community in their time of need, and we are proud to show our support.’

A word from the hospice

Jennifer Sheehy, North London Hospice's corporate engagement manager, added: ‘We are delighted that Specsavers in Palmers Green has chosen the hospice as the beneficiary of their latest fundraising initiative.

‘Last year, the hospice cared for more than 1400 people with a variety of life-limiting conditions in the local community. The care we provide extends beyond the patient to supporting families, friends and carers, both during a person’s illness and in bereavement.

‘On average, the NHS funds just a third of the costs of providing hospice care. We, therefore, rely on the generosity of local communities to deliver this much-needed care. We are extremely grateful to Specsavers for their support.’
