To celebrate our 30th year in business, we decided earlier in the year to raise money for 2 local charities close to our hearts.
As a small thank-you to the communities that have supported us and allowed us to grow over the past 30 years it was decided that in July and August this year, we would donate money from sales to 2 local charities. We decided that we would donate £1 from every pair of glasses sold in our Newark, Birstall, Anstey & Sileby branches to Beaumond House and Loros Hospice Care.
During those 2 months, we managed to raise an amazing £908 which was split evenly between the 2 charities. For this, we would like to say thank you to you our customers, for supporting us and helping us raise a fantastic amount of money.
During the 2 months, we had a totalizer on the home page of our website that tracked the amount every few days.
As we are based in Newark & Leceister, within local communities, we know many of you by name. We have heard stories of how these charities have helped your families in times of need and we wanted to help give back to those that are close to us. After being part of the local community for 30 years, we are proud to help give a little back and make a difference to others.
Beamond House Hospice Care provides supportive palliative care to patients with life-limiting or terminal illnesses. They have been supporting their patients and families since 1987. As a registered charity, all care is provided at no cost and so fundraising is critical to their continuing success. They support over 500 patients and their families every year.
Loros Hospice Care
Based in Leicester, LOROS Hospice is a local charity and every year cares for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. They provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers.
