A WORCESTER optician is relaunching itself this weekend with prize giveaways and raffles.

Spectrum Optica, formally Specs Express, in St Swithin’s Street, will be supporting St Richard’s Hospice during its opening weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

The business is now owned by Zohra Sumar, who wants to provide the best service and expertise to all Spectrum Optica customers, and to support the wider Worcester community.

There will be a raffle for the hospice including Ray-ban and Ted Baker sunglasses and a signed Worcester Rapids cricket bat.

The prize draw will be on Saturday at 4pm, to be conducted by the mayor Jabba Riaz.

New customer who sign up will be entered into a prize draw for Worcester Warriors tickets, and there will be 30per cent off frames and sunglasses

The business will have a special St Richard’s Hospice frame section, proceeds of which will be generously donated to the hospice.

Zohra said: “We want to provide an exemplary service to our customers as an independent business and contribute to the community by working together with the remarkable hospice. We are aiming to donate as much as possible, whilst also giving customers an innovative optical experience.”

Ria Simons, fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We are delighted to have the support of Spectrum Optica. Its fundraising will help us continue the care we provide to patients, their loved ones and bereaved people across the county.”
