Specsavers in Ringwood is getting into the festival spirit for the local carnival to raise money for Happy Dogs Rescue.

Children will be invited in-store to have their faces painted and staff will be dressing up and encouraging people to donate to the charity. 

Store director Clive Butterfield saids: ‘The Ringwood Carnival is a lively family event for all to enjoy and we’re proud to be a part of it. 

‘It’s a tradition in our community and we’ll be supporting Happy Dogs Rescue in the event to raise vital funds for them. Most of the staff have dogs and want to help those who haven’t got a home.’

The carnival is being held in Ringwood on Saturday 20 September.
