22 Nov 2016 by Emily McCormick

Optical Express is encouraging its 1500 employees across the UK and Ireland to donate between one hour to one day of their pay to charity this Christmas.

Launching its Christmas appeal in support of Sightsavers for a third consecutive year, the multiple has pledged to match any donation made by its employees.

Working in over 30 developing countries around the world, Sightsavers aims to prevent and cure blindness, and support those who are visually impaired through education and training.

Speaking about the annual festive appeal, chairman and CEO of Optical Express, David Moulsdale, said: “We are very proud to support the Sightsavers Christmas appeal again this year. The money raised will provide life-changing operations for people across the world. The impact that having good vision has can’t be underestimated, particularly in developing countries.”

Director of major giving at Sightsavers, Mike Straney, added: “The ongoing support from staff at Optical Express is absolutely fantastic. The kind donations are helping Sightsavers treat people who are blind from cataracts living in the poorest parts of the world, where accessing the surgery they need is not simple.”
