The Fort Kinnaird Specsavers branch recently celebrated its second birthday throwing a  beach party to raise money for Sick Kids.

The beach in question, was none other than the store itself. With weather no long an issue, the staff decorated the store with props and wore their  summer clothes.

A DJ was brought in and began playing classic summer songs as children were entertained with face paints and a balloon artist, raising £50 for the charity.

In the past six months the shop has raised £250 through various events towards Sick Kids. Tracy Galloway, director of the Fort Kinnaird branch, said : “It’s been great to celebrate our second birthday with a beach party but we also wanted to raise vital funds for a charity that is close to our hearts.”

“We are delighted to so many of our customer were able to join us on the day to help us celebrate.”
