A local opticians is on a mission to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society by hosting a 60s-themed cake sell and a week-long raffle with some amazing prizes.

Last week, the team at Specsavers in Sittingbourne donned their best 60s outfits to raise funds for those with dementia. They are also holding a raffle, with the final winner being picked on Monday 28 May.

A word from the store director

Caroline Matthews, store director at Specsavers Sittingbourne, says: ‘We want to raise as much money as we can to support the Alzheimer’s Society and the important work that they do and that’s why we are inviting all local residents to pop in and buy a ticket. You won’t regret it – the prices are amazing as well!’

The charity believes passionately that life doesn't end when dementia begins. They support those affected by dementia, and do everything they can to keep people with dementia connected to their lives and the people who matter most.

'Cause close to our hearts'

Caroline continues: ‘This cause is particularly close to our heart and as a company, we are committed to providing dementia awareness training so that colleagues understand how the senses, including sight and hearing, can be affected as well as having the skills and understanding to give all of customers the support they need.’
