Leightons partners with The Woodland Trust on tree planting initiative

The optical group will donate £1 from every ultimate sight test and hearing aid assessment at its practices until the end of December

Leightons Opticians and Hearing Care has pledged to donate £1 from every ultimate eye exam and hearing care appointment performed at any of its 34 practices until the end of December.

The donation, which began on 23 November, will be made to The Woodland Trust as it supports the organisation’s pledge to plant a million trees by the end of the year as part of its The Big Climate Change Fightback.

Customers at Leightons will also be given the opportunity to donate £1 to the cause at the opticians’ till points.

Speaking about the initiative, CEO of Leightons, Ryan Leighton, told the Reading Chronicle: “Leighton’s is all about helping our customers live life to the full by hearing, seeing and doing more. We want to do more to ensure the health of our natural environment which is crucial to all of our lives.”

Leightons confirmed that it will continue to support The Woodland Trust, which hopes to plant 60m trees over the next five years, through initiatives during 2020.
