Specsavers in Mansfield and Ashfield provide fundraising boost for Oxygen for India appeal
Staff at Specsavers in Sutton and Mansfield have donated £1,500 to help ensure vital oxygen supplies are available to those who need it in India.
The teams joined Specsavers stores throughout the UK who have rallied together as a response to the ongoing Covid crisis and to show support for the Oxygen for India appeal.
Imogen Hoyle, store director at Specsavers Mansfield, said: “We felt moved by the shocking news reports from India and wanted to do what we could to help save lives.”
Her comments were backed by Nigel Davidson, store director at Specsavers Sutton, who said his staff and their families ‘have had their lives touched’ by the pandemic and his store’s donation was an ‘opportunity to help and provide support to the global community’.
Paul Marshall, Specsavers managing director, said: “I am enormously proud of how quickly and passionately our store partners have responded.
"It is a testament to the care and compassion that Specsavers is globally recognised for.”
