STAFF from a Bromsgrove opticians will be covering 100 miles in 100 days in aid of a cause very close to their hearts.

The Specavers Bromsgrove team are flying the flag of the Epilepsy Society to raise awareness and vital funds through an endurance challenge.

Challenge 100 – from January 1 to April 9 – will see the staff walking, running, cycling and even go-karting along the high street to reach their 100 mile goal.

All funds raised through sponsorship’s will help the charity with their goal of transforming the lives of people with epilepsy through research, advocacy and care.

“We’ve got off to a great start, with lots of the team signed up to take part. We’ve even managed to rope in friends and family to clock a few miles too,” said Mark Gibson, store director at Specsavers Bromsgrove.

“Epilepsy is a cause that is very close to our hearts, so we’re thrilled to be able to support a charity that is making a real difference to the people affected by the condition.”

A donation page has been set up by the store to pull in funds for the charity.

Specsavers Bromsgrove have also set up a second-hand book stall in store, with a variety of books available for a donation to Epilepsy Society.

If you would like to donate your unwanted books or shop for new ones, pop into the store at 131 High Street, Bromsgrove, B61 8AE.
