Charity networking raises funds for ONCE guide dogs
BUSINESSES have united to help raise vital funds for the ONCE Foundation for Guide Dogs.
The networking event, held at the Rose and Thistle bar in Duquesa, helped to raise over 130€ for the worthy cause. This is part of Specsavers Ópticas’ campaign to raise 5,000€ for ONCE by the end of the year.
The event, hosted by Specsavers Ópticas Marbella and Shaw Marketing Services on 22 September, gave entrepreneurs and business owners a chance to make new contacts, exchange business cards and promote their companies. This cost-effective promotion and opportunity to get together following the COVID pandemic, was welcomed by all who attended.
Nerea Galdos-Little, store director of Specsavers Ópticas Marbella, says: ‘We’d like to thank everyone who came to the event and those people who donated even when they weren’t able to attend. It was wonderful to be able to talk about the important work that this charity is doing to breed and train guide dogs so they can be placed free of charge with people who have severe visual impairment, enabling them to live the fullest lives possible. We really enjoyed meeting businesses from the Manilva and Estepona areas and welcome them to visit the store for an eye test and take advantage of the 25% discount that we have running until the 20th of October.”
Specsavers Ópticas’ fundraising campaign continues until the end of the year and donations are welcome in store, or via the FOPG website. In order to identify your donation as part of their fundraising campaign please write SPEC in the box for your second surname.
Specsavers Ópticas is located on Avenida Ricardo Soriano, next to Massimo Dutti and comprehensive eye tests are free. Call 952 863 332 or visit www.specsavers.es
