Following a state-of-the-art refit to a Bradley Stoke opticians, the team celebrated by hosting a fun day, raising funds for CLIC Sargent.

Customers visiting Specsavers in Bradley Stoke on Saturday 15th September were greeted by special guests, Princess Belle and Spider-Man, as they marked the launch of their new and innovative store refit. People also had the opportunity to get their faces painted and then pose for a picture with the childhood favourite characters during the ‘meet and greet’.

The event offered an opportunity for locals to see the new store layout which provides a more efficient customer experience. The developments have also created more space and the result is a welcoming and modern store which includes the very latest testing equipment.

There was a Specsavers cake for customers to sample, while the official ribbon cutting took place under a balloon arch to mark the launch.

“We’re thrilled with the refurbishments here at Specsavers in Bradley Stoke,” said store director, Ed Stanleigh.

“The customer experience has been revolutionised and that gave us a great reason to celebrate and raise even more funds for our charity partner.”

Specsavers in Cribbs Causeway, Bradley Stoke and Filton have come together and nominated CLIC Sargent as their charity of the year for 2018. In a bid to raise as much money as possible for the children’s cancer charity, staff are taking part in several fundraising challenges and hosting events throughout the year.

“CLIC Sargent works tirelessly to support children and young people diagnosed with cancer,” continued Ed. “Having two young children myself, I cannot imagine the devastation a cancer diagnosis would bring or how people cope as a family, so it’s great to know CLIC Sargent exists to support those going through this.”

The funds raised will help to improve the quality of life of families and patients right from the point of diagnosis all the way through to recovery or bereavement.
