Burnham-On-Sea opticians shop joins 'National Wear It Red Day'

Staff at a Burnham-On-Sea opticians were seeing red on Friday (February 24th) to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

As well as paying for the privilege to wear something red as part of 'National Wear it Red Day', staff at Specsavers in Burnham High Street also took it in turns to have a go on an exercise machine with the aim of burning off 1,000 calories by the end of the day and raise sponsorship money.

Rama Venkat, store director at Specsavers in Burnham, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Heart disease is a big problem in this country so we wanted to help raise awareness, as well as funds for the British Heart Foundation."

"The physical challenge seemed to fit well and everyone gave it a go! We thank those residents who dropped in to show us their support and help us raise money."
