Big total is in sight for Bradford cycling opticians
11:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
University staff and students have been pedalling like mad for a good cause.
Optometry students and staff from the University of Bradford took to an exercise bike outside I Wear Opticians in the city centre.
Staff from the opticians also joined them in shifts to help pedal the bike from 10am to 5pm.
They raised hundreds of pounds for the charity Optometry Giving Sight and participants also gave out free balloons to passers-by.
I Wear Opticians’ optical assistant Melissa Ramsey said: “It went pretty well. We haven’t yet totalled up all the donations yet, we are still collecting online, but we have raised a few hundred pounds.”
