"As a local independent business, we are incredibly proud to still be going strong after ten years," said Sarah Gibson, owner and Optometrist at the practice. "The anniversary event is our way of saying thank you all our wonderful patients who have shown us loyalty and support over the years. We're also looking forward to raising some money for Guide Dogs at the same time. The charity does some fantastic work and these dogs make a huge difference to the lives of their owners."
