Specsavers opticians in Southend have been working hard in 2015 to support the Guide Dogs for the Blind charity and have already raised a fantastic sum of £149 since the turn of the year.

Mobility and freedom

The team at Specsavers Southend have been collecting in store for the charity which provides mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. With the help of the community, the store has been able to support the charity and all its efforts.

Close to our hearts

Store director, Stephen Kirby, said: ‘The guide dogs charity is really close to our hearts and we are always keen to do our bit to support the charity with all their hard work.

Raise awareness

‘They provide an extremely important service for many people and we hope that we can raise awareness of this among the Southend residents while ensuring that the charity’s work can continue.’

Southend community

The Southend store will continue with fundraising activities throughout the year and will be calling on the support of the Southend community.
