With Christmas nearly here, all our festive events have come to an end for 2019. At Edmonds & Slatter we take part in many different activities involving our local community and aim to help raise money for our chosen charities each year.
Most recently we have been supporting Matthew Needham's Treasure chest. The charity was set up in 2005 after Matthew, aged 9, passed away following open heart surgery at Glenfield Hospital. Matthew's parents along with the trustees run the charity to raise funds to purchase medical equipment for the children's Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Glenfield hospital as well as gifts, special days out and medical equipment for poorly children and families
in the local area. Edmonds & Slatter have chosen to support them as every penny raised makes a very big difference to local children.
Both our Blaby and Lutterworth practices held late night opening events to celebrate the local Christmas lights being switched on. Our Blaby practice welcomed a special guest who popped by for a sight test hoping to see things to infinity and beyond while in our Lutterworth practice they welcomed back our old friends from Leicestershire Guide Dogs and collected a little more for them.
In Glenfield along with our other practices, a little feathered friend came to stay, penguins looking for new names and homes for Christmas. The Lutterworth practice was invaded by a cheeky Elf and our Blaby practice was involved in the local Reindeer Round Up operation!
Including donations, a winter raffle and our own Christmas jumper day we have been able to donate a wonderful £480 to Matthew Needham's Treasure Chest this December and we would like to thank everyone involved for their support!
