Local charity champion, Ray Collins, has been welcomed into Specsavers to celebrate a spec-tacular fundraising milestone.

In April, the store sponsored Ray’s Race for Life which saw hundreds of supporters take to the streets to run, jog, walk and cycle up to 20km. Ray’s efforts – which also saw people take part in this year’s Shine Night Walk – have now seen an astonishing £15,000 raised for Cancer Research UK.

Nicky Rutter, store director, said: ‘We’re so pleased to have supported Ray’s fundraising efforts. He’s been working tirelessly to raise so much money for the charity and inspired hundreds of people to get behind the cause by taking part in the events he’s organised.’
