As part of National Eye Health Week, Specsavers in Upminster held a vintage tea party to raise money and awareness for the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB),
The opticians in Station Road in Upminster collected £150 for the charity by selling tea and cake to customers and passers-by.
Store manager of Specsavers in Upminster, Pavanpreet Omini said: “National Eye Health Week is all about raising awareness of the importance of regular eye tests, and this was a fun way of getting the message out there.
“An eye test doesn’t just check a person’s prescription, we are also able to detect serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), as well as other health issues including blood pressure issues and diabetes.”
