A store director from Specsavers in Poole put down his ophthalmoscope to compete in a knockout boxing event, raising around £1,500 for children’s charity Julia’s House.

Smashing his fundraising target

Sinan Khan, store director at Specsavers in Poole, smashed his fundraising target by taking part in the boxing night.

Specsavers staff members also cheered Sinan on at the event after taking part in a staff raffle to win tickets, and encouraged customers to donate via his JustGiving page.

Support from the community

Sinan says: ‘It was a fantastic match and raising £1,500 made it all the more worthwhile!

'It was great to receive so much support from both staff and the Poole community and I'm happy to have been able to contribute to our fundraising challenge for Julia's House. Thank you to everyone who came along and donated to help make a difference.'
