Both the Blaby and Lutterworth Edmonds & Slatter practices kicked off the festive season with their annual open evenings to coincide with the local Christmas lights being switched on. Mince pies, wine and goodie bags were enjoyed along with two charity raffles for LOROS and Wishes for Kids.
The Blaby practice was lucky enough to win first place in the trader’s shop window competition for the present theme window which was designed and constructed by Optical Receptionist Rosie Atkin. They are now proudly displaying the winning shield along side their snowy winter scene.
The Lutterworth practice also had a winning window. This years display by Dispensing Optician Joanne Benfield won third place in their local trader’s competition.
Charity had been a focus earlier in the month with the local independent opticians using the LOROS annual ball as a chance to have an early Christmas party. All the staff thoroughly enjoyed the Arabian Nights themed evening along with the chance to dress up and help raise funds for a good cause.
Finally the Lab team from Edmonds and Slatter took part in the Lutterworth Santa fun run bringing a close to the weekend’s festivities. Dan O’Hara, Lab Manager and Clare Dorman, Lab Technician took part in the run dressed in the traditional Santa costumes and braved the cold temperatures that Sunday.
