A group of Specsavers directors from across Essex, including optometrist director of Southend and Leigh-on-Sea stores John Staunton, will take part in a sponsored cycle ride and walk to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Directors from nine stores

The event will take place on Friday 25 May as part of Dementia Action Week (21-27 May) and will also include directors from Brentwood, Basildon, Canvey Island, Upminster, Bishops Stortford, Lakeside, Wickford and Clacton-on-Sea, along with Essex regional relationship manager, Roy Thorogood.

Second year running

Roy said: ‘This is our second year holding sporting events to raise money for this really worthwhile charity. We are pledging to raise a minimum of £1,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society, who do fantastic work supporting people suffering with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and their loved ones.’
