The Truro store was challenged to raise funds for the Cornwall Blind Association.

The store sold books and cakes, hosted a guess how many sweets in the jar competition and offered glasses repairs in exchange for donations to the charity.

Cornwall Blind Association

The store was given £50 by Cornwall Blind Association and was challenged to raise as much money from it by whatever means possible.

The money raised will be used to fund the charity’s befriending project, where volunteers visit visually impaired people to assist with tasks such as reading, going for a walk or shopping.

Amazing work

Graham Dunn, store director of Specsavers in Truro, says: ‘It was a privilege to raise money for Cornwall Blind Association. We see the amazing work they do on a daily basis for blind and partially sighted people in Cornwall, so we were very pleased that we can do our bit to help.

We are very pleased to have raised £357 and would like to thank all our customers for their support and donations.’
