SPECSAVERS in Southport is celebrating raising £676 for Southport Soup Kitchen, and will be hosting a free eye health clinic for homeless in need at the end of the month.

The opticians raised the funds from sales of accessories sold throughout December, which will go directly to the Southport Soup Kitchen.

In addition, the store will be opening its doors on the 22nd January to offer a free eye health clinic to homeless people in Southport.

The team also had collection boxes available throughout December for customers to donate hats, scarves, and blankets.

The Southport Soup Kitchen provides hot nourishing food and beverages to homeless and disadvantaged people in Southport – and is always looking for extra support during the winter months, especially over Christmas.

Victoria Dunn, director at Specsavers Southport, says ‘The work the Southport Soup Kitchen does is really inspiring and the team are so happy to be able to help and do their part.

‘We’d like to thank all our customers who have helped us throughout December and those who have donated items – you’ve each played a huge part in the success of this fundraising initiative.’
