Through their 90’s themed celebration day, Specsavers in Grantham has raised more than £100 in donations from generous customers for its nominated charity, the Grantham Talking Newspaper for the Blind.
With staff decked out in retro finery and 90’s costumes, including new store director Colin Ducker welcoming customers as Mr Blobby, the opticians hosted the themed day on June 28 to mark its 20th anniversary.
Dressed as Ali G on the day, store director Bijal Ladva said: ‘We had a great time on Saturday and through the generosity of our customers and the support of colleagues in store, we have been able to raise hundreds of pounds for charities this year including Children in Need, the British Heart Foundation and St Barnabas hospice.
“We’d also like to thank our thousands of customers who have visited the store since we opened our doors in 1994.”
Visitors still have the chance to enter a competition which runs until the end of July to win a pair of designer specs by matching photos of staff members from 1994 with their current pictures.
Spec wearers are also invited to pop into the store for a glasses MOT (cleaning and adjustment) in return for a small donation to the store’s charity, Grantham’s Talking Newspaper for the Blind.
