Families joined staff at a March opticians for an Easter inspired party in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
The Specsavers branch in Broad Street, March, held a dedicated Easter clinic for children to teach them all about the importance of eye health.
Each child was given an Easter goody bag full of games and treats. There was also competitions to design an Easter egg and guess the name of the Easter bunny.
While children learned about their eyes, parents enjoyed various fund-raising activities including a cake sale and an in-store raffle to win prizes including designer frames.
Trevor Clark, store director, said: “We had lots of fun things planned for our Easter party and would like to thank customers and staff for their generosity.
