On Friday the 5th of September Edmonds and Slatter Opticians took part in HOPE Against Cancer’s inaugural Bold & Blue event. The aim of the day was to celebrate Hope against Cancer's role in the launch of the Cancer Research Centre of Excellence in Leicester and raise some funds along the way.
All staff members were asked to come to work wearing something Bold & Blue and to make a £2 donation to HOPE. Dispensing Optician Michelle Stubley commented “We had posters and balloons around the practice and the patients were very interested in what we were doing. Some even donated towards the fundraising total” Michelle continued “All our practices joined in, even the lab. It was great fun and HOPE is wonderful charity to raise funds for. As an opticians we should have kept a look out for any blue eyed patients that day too!”
Edmonds & Slatter raised £75.18 for HOPE Against Cancer that day and wouldn’t hesitate to join in the fun again next year. If you would like any further information on HOPE or to make a donation please go to www.hfcr.org
