Fifth anniversary celebration planned at Burnham opticians

Specsavers in Burnham-On-SeaA four-legged friend will be making an appearance at a Burnham-On-Sea opticians next Wednesday (September 22nd) as part of its birthday celebrations.

Specsavers at 3 High Street will be celebrating its fifth birthday with a dog-themed party day in the store to raise money for Guide Dogs.

The special guest will be two-and-a-half year old black Labrador Annie and her owner Maggie Burgess who will be at the store between 2 and 3pm.

There will be lots of other activities going on, including a coffee morning where customers can enjoy hot drinks and cake in return for a donation. A raffle will be running throughout the day, with the chance of winning a doggie hamper as well as a 'guess the number of dog treats in a jar' competition. Staff will also be carrying out specs MOTs, cleaning and adjustments, in return for donations.

For younger customers, a pin the tail on the picture of a dog competition will be held in the afternoon and children up to the age of 11 will be invited to enter a colouring competition to draw their pet dog.

Rama Venkat, store director at Specsavers in Burnham, told "We wanted to do something special to celebrate our birthday and say thank you to all our customers."

"We've had a great first five years and we're looking forward to many more so please come down to help us celebrate and join in the fun. Guide Dogs is a charity we are really proud to support and I'm delighted that Annie will be our guest of honour."
