A Fakenham opticians eyed up an excellent fundraising idea by hosting a charity book sale on World Book Day to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Branch manager Claire Stringer said: “Alzheimer’s affects a growing number of people in our community and there is a real need for continued research and support.

“Our book sale is a chance for us to raise funds and awareness for a cause we care about.”

Scrivens has nominated the Alzheimer’s Society as its chosen charity for the third successive year and so far have raised more than £28,000.
