A special fundraising week at Specsavers Torquay kicked off on Sunday 17 January where staff braved the cold and ran into the Torbay sea to encourage donations for Cancer Research UK.

An early start in Torquay

Various members of the Torquay team brought their children along to join in for an 8am start at the Torquay seafront, by the Belgrave Beefeater restaurant. 

The event will be followed by various activities throughout this week, including a bake sale, tombola and a male staff member getting his legs waxed. All donations made will go towards Cancer Research UK.

Specsavers Torquay staff are determined to beat their fundraising efforts from last year, which saw them raise a total of £4,000 for the charity.
