Specsavers Romford have taken a swing at the Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) tournament in aid of Cancer Research UK by providing a close friend of the store, director Bhavi Mistry’s husband, Rajan Darbar, with a donation of £100.

Intensive training 

After deciding he wanted to try something new and do something positive in the process, Rajan signed up to the UWCB tournament in Romford and embarked on eight weeks of intense training from ex-professional boxers and trainers to get him fighting fit for the upcoming event. 

When store director Bhavi found out that he was taking part, she was keen to support him, and the whole store backed her with an £100 donation. 

Alright on the night 

On the night of the tournament, Rajan was joined by friends, family and store staff who cheered him on. 

Bhavi says: ‘At Specsavers we always aim to contribute to all the deserving charities we can, and Cancer Research UK is a shining example. We are always keen to get involved, whether it’s in store or through friends and family. 

Will glasses affect my involvement in sport? 

‘Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses when it comes to sport, providing a safe and effective alternative to glasses while on the pitch or in the ring.’
