Roath opticians celebrates store reopening with charity fundraiser

AN OPTICIANS in Roath has raised £126 for a breast cancer charity to mark its official store reopening following a £250,000 renovation.

Specsavers Albany Road, which officially reopened on the bank holiday weekend, hosted a family fun day on Saturday 25 May. It had a range of activities, treats and goody bags for the community to enjoy.

Staff and customers came together in the newly renovated store to support CoppaFeel, a charity founded by Kris Hallenga after being diagnosed with terminal secondary breast cancer at the age of 23. The charity aims to ensure breast cancers are accurately diagnosed at an early stage.

Jessica Borley, director at Specsavers Albany Road, said: ‘Connecting with the local community is very important to us at Specsavers. Bringing everyone together to support such a meaningful charity was truly special.

She said: “Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to our fundraiser so far, and we hope you enjoyed the new look store.”

The renovation included the addition of two new test rooms to provide extra space and accommodate the increasing demand for eye tests and audiology clinics in the area.

The store now offers services on behalf of the NHS, including prescriptions for a range of eye conditions and providing professional ear wax removal.

The store remains open seven days a week, Monday-Saturday 9am – 5:30pm, and Sunday 10am – 5pm.

To book an appointment at Specsavers Albany Road, call 029 2043 7220 or visit: https://www.specsavers.co.uk/book/cardiffalbanyroad.

Additionally, to make eye health accessible to all, the store offers a Home Visits service for those unable to leave their homes unaccompanied due to disability or illness.
