The team at Specsavers, 27 Market Place, held a draw for prizes including race tickets and a bottle of prosecco, kindly donated by local businesses. The grand prize was a pair of designer sunglasses that can be purchased without a prescription. The bake sale, which took place over two days, also helped bring the fundraising total to £415, with the store adding a further £200.

The store chose Cribs for Babies after store manager Pamela De Jesus sadly lost her niece at just five days old last year and the charity supported the family.

“Toddler cribs are very close to my heart,” says Pamela. “They have been incredible in looking after my family during such a difficult time and this fundraising event meant we could give something back.” We have been overwhelmed by the support our customers have given us. The whole team really supported the fundraising which helped make it a success. We also had a donation box, badges that were available for purchase, and we gave out balloons and stickers to the teens.

“Thank you so much to everyone who donated, it was greatly appreciated,” continues Pamela. “We are approaching our first birthday, which we plan to celebrate and say thank you to our customers for their continued support.”
