Staff from the Town Centre opticians took part in lots of fun to celebrate World Book Day and raise money for charity.
Staff at a Huddersfield opticians took on a cheerful new look as fictional characters to focus on the joy of reading and raise funds for their chosen charity, Alzheimer’s Society.
The 101 Dalmations themed fun at Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care on Cloth Hall Street was inspired by World Book Day and featured a charity book and cake sale.
To support the cause the branch is also running a Design a Book Cover colouring competition for children until the end of April, with a £1 suggested donation to enter. The winners will receive a collection of classic children’s books.
Branch manager Sue Deakins, said: “It was fun to get into character to celebrate the joy of reading, especially for children, and also to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s. Dementia affects a growing number of people in our community and there is a real need for continued research and support. Our book and cake sale helped us to raise funds for a cause we care about.”
Scrivens is supporting Alzheimer’s Society for a seventh successive year because there is evidence of a link between uncorrected hearing loss and dementia, including Alzheimer’s.
