MYOPTIQUE GROUP CHARITY & SOCIAL
ABOUT OUR CHARITY & SOCIAL COMMITTEE
Our aim is to create an exciting calendar of events and activities which our employees can really get behind and support. Some months will involve fundraising, whilst others might be raising awareness of an important topic. The idea is to get everyone engaged and involved.

Swindon's members are Alex Huscroft, Hayley Baker, Carly Ruck, Kay Kipling, Neil Conway, Mat Bellamy and Natalie Millar, Nia Underhill and Kim Whyburd. With London consisting of Barney Streeting, Michelle Elkins, Mary Wheeler, Candy Chan and Emily Gribble. We are always keen to hear from anyone who might like to join us!
COMIC RELIEF RED NOSE DAY
WHAT IS RED NOSE DAY?
Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and raise money at home, school and work.
There’s a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously.
Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and internationally.
Swindon will be holding an Easter Egg Collection in aid of SMASH, a local charity helping local children, whilst London have decided to hold an Easter Egg Hunt.
