The Swansea team has thanked locals for helping to raise more than £100 for Blind Veterans UK.

Tasty prizes

Staff at the Kingsway store hosted a cake sale where customers were encouraged to make a donation in exchange for a chocolate treat.

Customers were also able to enter a raffle for the chance to win a Thornton’s gift box and a pair of prescription designer sunglasses.

Swansea resident, Kay Evans, was the lucky raffle winner.

‘Vital services’

The money was donated to Blind Veterans UK, which offers physical and emotional support to service men and women from the armed forces who are suffering from sight loss. Its support enables veterans to overcome the difficulties of living with blindness and help them live their lives as independently as possible.

Tracy Hill, manager at Specsavers Swansea, says: ‘There is an obvious connection between Specsavers and the charity so we are more than happy to support it and in turn, help it continue to offer its vital services.

‘We had a lot of fun with the raffle and the cake sales always go down well, so we’re not surprised we were able to make this contribution to the charity.’
