GALLERY: Scary specs designed at optician’s charity Halloween celebrations
STAFF and customers at Specsavers in March hope to have raised �500 for the Ormiston Children and Family Trust from their Halloween celebrations this week.
Children were encouraged to design a scary pair of specs at the fun day on Saturday, take part in competitions, and have their faces decorated by a professional face painter.
Staff dressed in scary costumes, and a range of home made Halloween themed cakes and chocolate apples were on sale.
Retail director Trevor Clark said: “We have been fund raising all week for this very worthwhile charity. The crew dressed up in Halloween garb, and our cake stall on Saturday was well supported, it was a really nice day.
“We were keen to raise awareness of the Ormiston Children and Family Trust, and raise some money for them.”
