A series of events organized by staff from Essilor UK in December raised over £1,250 for Optometry Giving Sight, a worldwide charity that provides eye care services, training and infrastructure in developing countries across the world.
“The World Sight Day Company Challenge has become a regular event in the Essilor calendar,” commented Donna Power, Regional Manager, Europe of Optometry Giving Sight.
“We’re incredibly thankful to the entire Essilor UK workforce who donated funds to help eliminate avoidable blindness, and by doing this have created the opportunity to give other people both sight and hope in the developing world.”
Over 250 people across the UK got involved in a number of activities from lunches, quizzes and raffles with prizes including a half day’s holiday to designer sunglasses donated by some of Essilor UK’s ECP customers. The events were part of the team’s World Sight Day programme.
