Staff ‘pretty in pink’ for char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP - ED­WARD DAVIES

EYE care staff were pretty in pink to help raise vi­tal funds for Breast Can­cer Care.

Staff from Mac­cles­field’s Spec­savers store donned the colour for a fundraiser, which has so far drummed up more than £540 in col­lec­tions.

The Grosvenor Cen­tre shop also hosted a bake sale while a Tutu-clad em­ployee toured the town with a col­lec­tion box.

Craig Wol­las­ton, dis­pens­ing con­sul­tant, or­gan­ised the event.

He said: “We’ve been bowled over by the gen­eros­ity of our cus­tomers who have helped us raise so much money.

“I had lots of peo­ple tell me that if I was pre­pared to dress up like this, then the least they could do was put some money in our col­lec­tion and I am amazed by how much they have do­nated.” Raf­fle tick­ets are still be­ing sold un­til Fri­day 31 Oc­to­ber with prizes in­clud­ing Thorn­tons cho­co­lates, de­signer Spec­savers glasses and other goody bags.
