Company to walk 20 miles to mark 20 years in business
15th March 2018
Eyeplan Ltd, the leading provider of monthly payment eye care schemes in the UK, is celebrating 20 years in business this year. To mark the occasion, the company is sponsoring the Big Blind Walk 2018, a sight loss fundraising and awareness initiative that will see volunteers walk from Land’s End to John O’Groats. The volunteers are headed up by Julian Jackson, Founder and Director of social enterprise VisionBridge. The Eyeplan marketing team will be joining the Big Blind Walk on Thursday 10th May and will walk 20 miles from Frome to Castle Combe.
Eyeplan’s walking team consists of Commercial Director Chris Clemence, Marketing Executives Hayley Blanning and Dorothy Chandler and Social Media Assistant Victoria Mills. All four have begun training in earnest and have set a target of each finding 20 sponsors to donate £5 per person. Eyeplan will then match the funds raised by the marketing team with the aim of donating at least £800 to the Big Blind Walk’s nominated organisations, the National Eye Research Centre and VisionBridge.
“We are delighted to be celebrating Eyeplan’s 20th anniversary this year. Since 1998, we have worked with hundreds of independent optical practices throughout the UK and Ireland, helping them to generate significant practice revenues from contracted monthly income and improved dispense rates and values,” said Chris Clemence, Commercial Director at Eyeplan Ltd. “The Big Blind Walk seemed like a great opportunity to walk 20 miles for 20 years, all while raising money for a great cause. We are looking forward to joining the walk at Frome.”
“I am thrilled with Eyeplan’s support,” said Julian Jackson. “This show of commitment is a brilliant example of how supporters can get so enthusiastically behind the Big Blind Walk and through raising awareness of sight loss and fundraising for eye research, can help us all take a step towards creating a future where everyone can see!”
Providing a personal approach to managed fee generation, Eyeplan also offers a variety of marketing support and business development to its Associates including direct mail campaigns, design and print services, PR support and training.
