An Edinburgh practice is selling stockings knitted and donated by a patient to raise money for the charity

Specsavers Corstorphine celebrates Christmas

The practice team at Specsavers Corstorphine in Edinburgh is selling mini knitted Christmas stockings to raise money for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

Each stocking, which was knitted and donated to the practice by patient Christine Barclay, will be sold for £1.

Store director at Specsavers Corstorphine, Adam Gordon, said: “RNIB is a very special charity and each year we work closely with them to transform the nation’s eye health through education, awareness and action. We’re proud to support RNIB and hope our customers pop in to pick up one of festive decorations. They are perfect Christmas gifts.”

Area funding managing for East Scotland at the RNIB, Angela Preston, added: “We simply couldn’t provide the care and support we do if it wasn’t for the help and support of our local community and we’re so grateful to the Specsavers team for their continued support.”
