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.
