Circus day in March opticians raises money for children’s hospice

STAFF at Specsavers in March dressed up in circus costumes for a day to raise money for a charity which looks after terminally ill children.

To celebrate their first anniversary at the store in Broad Street, the opticians held a circus-themed fun day on Saturday, including face painting and balloon modelling to raise money for East Anglian Children’s Hospice (Each).

The hospice provides care and support to children with life threatening conditions across Norfolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk at its hospices in Quidenham, Ipswich and Milton.

Store director at Specsavers March Trevor Clark said: “The East Anglian Children’s Hospice provides invaluable support and care throughout the community. We could not think of a more worthwhile cause.

“The day also gives us the chance to celebrate with our customers our first year in the community.”
