Vista partners with Henry Smith and Hamilton opticians for 2017

Sight loss charity Vista has officially partnered with local opticians Henry Smith and Hamylton, starting off a year of fundraising for the charity.

The charity and the opticians have been linked for many years. They recently collaborated in the introduction of groundbreaking spectacle lenses, designed to improve vision in people with Macular Degeneration.

In celebration of Henry Smith and Hamylton’s 130th anniversary, the family-based opticians will be aiming to raise money for Vista with various fundraising activities throughout the year.

Becky Poole, Community and Corporate Fundraiser, said “This is an incredibly exciting partnership – to celebrate 130 years of Henry Smith and Hamylton, we have created a calendar of fundraising activities to raise vital funds for local people with sight loss.”

“From March until June, each colleague has pledged to walk 130 virtual miles in aid of Vista, which is the equivalent of walking from Leicester’s Haymarket Memorial Clock Tower to Brighton Pier!”

“Please show your support for Henry Smith and Hamylton on their fundraising journey.”
