Staff even dressed up in Grease style costumes to really get into the swing of things

The team at Specsavers in Fallowfield turned back time to raise money to support people with sight loss.

To celebrate Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)’s 150th anniversary, the Fallowfield Specsavers store raised £350 for the national sight loss charity.

The store was decorated with bunting and balloons, tea and coffee were offered to customers and delicious cakes were baked in support of the event on 19th October 2018.

Staff even dressed up in Grease style costumes to really get into the swing of things. Female team members dressed as the iconic pink ladies, whilst male colleagues were T-birds for the day.

The store also hosted a raffle, which included prizes donated by local businesses. The top prize included a luxury hamper with beauty products and prosecco, and a file and polish at nearby Body Torque Beauty Salon.

The money raised will go towards providing free talking books, offering essential advice and support as well as ensuring the RNIB’s helpline can continue to run and make a difference to people’s lives.

Amanda Pedder, store director from Specsavers Fallowfield says: ‘We want to say a huge thank you to all our customers for coming out to support our Vintage Tea and the incredible work for the RNIB. The day was filled with fun and proved to be a huge success. It was fantastic to see so many team members getting creative with their outfits, and even better to see how popular the cakes were!’
