Bundles of fun
On Friday 10th August, the London office took part in a lucky dip to raise money for local charity, Moorfields Eye Charity. They managed to raise a whopping £186!
The mission was simple. To take part, everyone had to donate £2. After this, people put their hands into one of two boxes and pulled out a bundle containing two pieces of eyewear – without peeping or double-dipping. These bundles were extra enticing as they were filled with designer pieces like Ray-Ban®, Prada, Chanel, Oakley, and popular house brands like Scout and London Retro.
All for a good cause
The lucky dip an excellent opportunity to raise money for a good cause (many people participated more than once) and to distract the office from work for a short while. Though everyone took part and had a good time, it wasn’t just the prospect of getting their hands on designer eyewear for just £2 that made the afternoon enjoyable. It was also the unexpected like picking out styles that didn’t suit; lens-less glasses, frame-less ski goggles, as well as glasses with old customer prescriptions. Despite these mini mishaps, it was all in the name of a good cause and like we mentioned above, we raised £186.
