The team in Perth will be holding a fundraising day, ahead of National Eye Health Week (18-24 September), to raise vital funds in support of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).
Staff host a ‘wear dots raise lots’ party on 2 September, and will have a polka dot theme, encouraging customers to wear polka dots when they drop in for the fundraiser.
The team will be baking up dotty treats for a bake sale as well as hosting a tombola with top prizes. Costa Coffee will be giving away free coffee and iced drinks, and one lucky customer who purchases their glasses during the day will also be refunded back the full cost, giving them a free pair of specs.
Store manager Elaine White will be bringing in Rebus the Labrador, who will be getting involved by sporting a dotty neckerchief. Customers will have the opportunity to guess Rebus’ birthday to be in with a chance of winning a cuddly toy dog.
The partnership between Specsavers and the RNIB, will not only see Specsavers in Perth raising money for the charity, but will also focus on increasing awareness of the importance of regular eye tests in preventing people from needlessly losing their sight.
A word from our store director
Sharon Philip, store director at Specsavers in Perth, said: ‘Our mission together with the RNIB is to transform the nation’s eye health through education, awareness and action; we want to reverse these worrying eye health trends that are putting unnecessary pressure on the health service and placing a massive burden on the public purse.
‘We look forward to welcoming old and new customers into the store on 2 September for a fun-filled day for a great cause.’
