Staff at Specsavers Sutton-in-Ashfield went dotty to raise more than £50 for Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB).
The team donned spotty clothing to raise funds for the cause, offering customers homemade cakes in return for donations. They also ran a raffle to win a large chocolate cake, courtesy of corporate manager, Sarah Mehmet.
A word from the store director
‘We had a fantastic day, swapping uniforms for spots and embracing this popular fundraising initiative,’ said store director, Nigel Davidson. ‘It’s a great way both to raise funds to the support the work of the RNIB, and to increase awareness of its vital work, supporting those affected by sight loss in the community.’
The RNIB ‘wear dots to raise lots’ campaign highlights the impact of braille, a unique system of raised dots that can be read by touch. Learning braille means that blind and partially-sighted people can enjoy reading for life.
