Opticians’ cy­cle for bet­ter eye sight

Halifax Courier - - The Week In Court -

Staff from Whi­tak­ers Opticians, Sowerby Bridge and El­land, Jonathan Whitaker and Richard Barker, pushed it up a gear in the sad­dle. They cy­cled 119-miles along stage one of the Tour de France route to raise money for Op­tom­e­try Giv­ing Sight - glob­ally tar­get­ing the pre­ven­tion of blind­ness and im­paired vi­sion through eye ex­am­i­na­tion and glasses.

Jonathan said: “It was a tough chal­lenge but worth it to help pro­vide funds to al­low peo­ple to see. We all take eye­care and glasses for granted but that isn’t the case in many coun­tries”
