Style Optique of Market Drayton will be showcasing some of the newest releases from collections never before seen in the UK, with glasses to suit all personality and colour types.

The two day event will take place between 10am and 7pm on October 2 and 3 at the practice in Cheshire Street.

For every pair of frames sold, £50 will be donated to the Market Drayton fundraising branch of Severn Hospice. There will also be a raffle and an exclusive prize draw, with one lucky ticket owner winning eyewear worth up to £750. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the hospice.

Eva Davé, co-founder and director of Style Optique, said: "Every October we run a very popular and well attended styling event, but with current Covid-19 restrictions in place, this would be impossible to arrange. We normally go to Paris and Milan to source brand new eyewear but for the first time ever this year, the entire Paris and Milan collections are coming exclusively to Market Drayton.

"As we have been given exclusivity to showcase the entire ranges of newly launched eyewear collections we carry from Paris and Milan, we decided to host a private viewing event as an alternative in which clients, existing and new, can view the entire ranges in the safety, comfort and privacy of our practice.

"We are delighted to be supporting the tremendous work of Severn Hospice... who have seen a dip in income due to the pandemic. As well as raising vital funds for those living with incurable illness, we will be celebrating difference, individuality, style through our exclusive eyewear collections.’’

'Every contribution makes a difference

The Market Drayton Severn Hospice supporters group has been unable to hold any fundraising events during 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions and needs support.

Caroline Wellon, the group's chair, said: "We had several events planned this year to raise money for Severn Hospice but one-by-one they’ve had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. So, we are really excited that Style Optique are offering their clients a chance to support us at this one-off event.

"The hospice has to raise £2 for every £3 it spends on care so every contribution makes a difference.”

To book an appointment at the exclusive event, call 01630 652945 or email info@styleoptique.co.uk.

Strict Covid-19 health and safety procedures will be in place and all clients will be given instructions before arrival.
