Coffee and cake to raise cash for charity

A Pocklington opticians is focusing on raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Society and supporting World Alzheimer’s Day by holding a coffee morning and cake sale throughout the day this Saturday.

Manager Emma Humphreys will also be completing a 10km run and splitting the proceeds with her Driffield branch too.

Scrivens Opticians and Hearing Care, based in George Street, is looking to raise as much money and awareness as possible as part of its ongoing support for Alzheimer’s Society – its chosen charity for the year.

As part of its fundraising activities the branch has also pledged to donate £1 for every hearing screening taking place this week until Saturday.
