Staff at a Morley opticians swapped eye exams for walking boots to raise money for St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds.

The 15-strong team from Specsavers covered 262 miles - the distance from Morley to Brighton - through a series of local walks. They raised £681.50.

Sarah Plumpton, store director, said: “We initially aimed to collect £500 with our sponsored walks and we’re therefore delighted to surpass this target. I’d like to say a huge thank you to the team for taking part and huge thank you to all the people who sponsored us.”
