Specsavers in Stourport ended last year on a high note after raising an impressive £1,174 for Mentor Link, a local charity that supports vulnerable and distressed children by providing adult volunteer mentors.
The team ran a Christmas raffle with 20 prizes up for grabs, including eight bottles of wine, a bottle of prosecco and a bottle of champagne, kindly donated by local financial advisor, Neil Barton. Other local businesses contributed goodies including a beautiful china dish full of toiletries, make-up, ornaments, Celebrations and Quality Street.
A word from the store director
Store director, Tim Reeves, said: ‘We are delighted to have raised more than £1,000 for the remarkable work of Mentor Link in their mission to support vulnerable children.
‘We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our loyal customers and the local businesses who have supported us. We were blown away by the levels of generosity in the community and hope to continue fundraising in 2018.’
