Eyes on the prize at opticians

Rob George 9th Apr, 2022

THE Easter bunny has arrived early at a Worcester opticians in a bid to raise funds for a local children’s hospice.

Not only is a one-metre tall Easter bunny in situ at Specsavers in Worcester, the store is also currently home to a 2kg milk chocolate egg.

Between now and next Friday (April 15) anyone visiting the store on Pump Street can have the opportunity to win either the egg, via a raffle, or take home the bunny by guessing its name.

Raffle tickets and name guesses are available for a suggested donation of £1, with all proceeds going to Acorns Children’s Hospice.

“We’ve been long-time supporters of Acorns having raised more than £10,000 since 2007 and Easter ,seems like a good opportunity to drum up some more support,” said Alan Richards, Specsavers Worcester store director.

“We’d encourage anyone to come down, whether you’re a chocoholic, or in need of a giant no maintenance furry friend – your donation will be very much appreciated.”

Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for babies, children and young people and support for their families. For more information visit

In line with guidance from the NHS, Specsavers is keeping safety measures in place, including the wearing of face coverings, unless there is a medical exemption. This includes maintaining social distancing in stores, continuing to use PPE and sanitising all testing equipment and frames.

Specsavers will also continue to operate its Ask The Expert chat function on its website and its RemoteCare service via video call or phone.
