Edmonds and Slatter opticians will be hosting their annual Christmas open evening on 27th November at their practices in Blaby, Glenfield and Lutterworth. These events will be an opportunity for patients and local residents to join the opticians for a drink and a mince pie, and enjoy the entertainment provided. Expect Christmas songs, goodie bag give-aways and raffle prizes. You will even have the chance to meet a guide dog in training, Leicester Riders basketball players and some popular children’s characters for the kids!
Previous years have seen people queuing outside the Blaby practice hoping for a glimpse of Disney’s Frozen characters or the Leicester Riders. It is hoped that this year will be another successful evening with Minions attracting a crowd to the practice and the Leicester Riders joining the Blaby opticians once again. Visitors will also have the chance to take part in a charity raffle at the Blaby and Lutterworth practices with the chance to win a Kindle e-reader, designer sunglasses or VIP basketball tickets to name a few. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Guide Dogs – the opticians are even expecting a representative from the charity on the night with a guide dog puppy in training!
The practices will remain open until 7:30pm with staff volunteering their time to help out. We recommend getting their early to make the most of the entertainment before the Christmas Lights Switch On in the town centres. With goodie bags for the kids and drinks for the grown-ups, there is something for everyone at Edmonds and Slatter.
