The team at Specsavers Romford love to get a-head of the game.

That is why they were so keen to take part in Wear a Hat Day for the charity Brain Tumour Research.

Annual awareness day

The annual awareness day is designed to raise the profile of the condition and encourage greater research funding.

Currently just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to brain tumour research.

A good cause

Bhavi Mistry, store director in Romford, said: ‘Brain tumour research is a really good cause, and has a real link to our work. Brain tumours can sometimes be detected by a routine eye test, so getting your eyes checked regularly is really important.

‘I would like to thank the team for all their efforts, and our customers for supporting us.’
