The team at Specsavers in Sutton collected an impressive £1,801.06 for their chosen local charity in 2018, the John Eastwood Hospice Trust.
‘Giving back to our community is really important to us and this cause is special to so many local people,’ said Specsavers store director Nigel Davidson. ’It’s been huge fun raising money for the inspirational team behind The John Eastwood Hospice and we’re excited to announce we’ve decided to continue supporting the charity in 2019.’
Year of action
Five members of staff took part in the Tough Mudder at Belvoir Castle in the spring, getting the fundraising off to a great start. Since then, the team has been busy with charity activity in store, including a successful bake-off to round off the year, when the team was joined by members of the charity to celebrate their year of partnership.
The John Eastwood Hospice Trust supports the local NHS in delivering specialised palliative care. The trust is devoted to providing a comfortable and dignified end of life environment.
