Op­ti­cian puts fo­cus on char­ity’s do­na­tion ini­tia­tive

The Oban Times - - News -

AN OP­TI­CIANS on Ge­orge Street, Oban, pledged its sup­port for an Oban char­ity and re­cently vis­ited the group to de­liver a trol­ley full of food do­na­tions.

Hope Kitchen, which helps to feed more than 40 peo­ple per day, launched a ‘Take in a Tin’ cam­paign ear­lier this year and Spec­savers Oban an­swered the call.

A ‘jazzed-up’ shop­ping trol­ley was placed in Spec­savers to en­cour­age and col­lect do­na­tions.

The store team, with help from the com­mu­nity, filled the trol­ley with tins and bags of food which they then pre­sented to Hope Kitchen to help those in need.

Ken Mac­don­ald, Spec­savers Oban store di­rec­tor, said: ‘Buy­ing a cou­ple ex­tra cans in a weekly shop and then do­nat­ing them is a sim­ple ges­ture that can have such a huge pos­i­tive im­pact on the lives of oth­ers.

‘It’s been fan­tas­tic to see the sup­port from the lo­cal com­mu­nity and our store team which has al­lowed us to make a great do­na­tion to Hope Kitchen. A big thank you to ev­ery­one in­volved.’
