On Friday the 18th of September Edmonds and Slatter Opticians will be taking part in HOPE Against Cancer’s second Bold & Blue event. The aim of the day is twofold: to promote awareness of the work carried out by Hope Against Cancer and to raise funds, supporting a local charity in a fun, enjoyable way. All staff members will be coming to work wearing something Bold & Blue and to making a £2 donation to HOPE.
Amy Coleburne commented “Last year we had posters, stickers and balloons around the practice and the patients were very interested in what we were doing. Some even donated towards the fundraising total.” Amy 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 be keeping a look out for any blue eyed patients that day too!”
If you would like to make a donation please visit any of Edmonds and Slatter’s Practices in Blaby, Glenfield or Lutterworth. For any further information on HOPE or to make a direct donation please go to www.hfcr.org
