A WORCESTER opticians will work with the local charity Forces Support, to raise funds for Armed Forces Day, on Saturday, June 28.

On the day, the team at Specsavers in Broad Street are pledging to donate £1 to the charity for every person that visits their free, walk-in contact lens clinic.

Forces Support will have a stand outside the store in Worcester and will be on hand to answer any questions customers may have and provide information on the charity.

And the store itself will be giving away goodie bags.

Alan Richards, store director at Specsavers, Worcester said: "We are very proud to be donating to men and women who dedicated their lives to protect us and our country.

"This is just one way that we can pay our respects, and we hope that plenty of people join us on the day."

Forces Support is a charity set up in honour of all the brave service personnel who have lost their life in current and recent conflicts, or while serving. The charity provides general maintenance around the home and garden for families of a lost member by employing professional builders and maintenance personnel and apprentices, who are direct employees of the charity. They accept applications from parents, widows, widowers and children of bereaved military personnel.
