Independent opticians Yates & Suddell have practiced in Bury for over 70 years and have firm roots in the town. On the 29th April they held a fund raising event in aid of the Macular Society in their Bury practice.
The Macular Society helps raise awareness of an eye disease called macular degeneration, the leading cause of sight loss in the industrialized world. Their ‘Tea for MD’ initiative encourages people touched by macular degeneration to get together over a cup of tea and a slice of cake to share their experiences.
The Mayor of Bury, Michelle Wiseman, came along to the event to lend her support which raised over £200
for the society.
“We see lots of people in the practice who suffer
from macular degeneration. Events like Tea for MD really help people to come to terms with the disease by providing an incredible support network.”, said Stuart Goodman, director of Yates & Suddell.
“We are really happy to help the Macular Society who do such fantastic work.”
