Eye doctors swapped their white coats in favour of being pretty in pink to raise money for a cancer charity.
The colour is usually associated with the fight against breast cancer, but staff at Specsavers opticians in East Ham held a pink-themed fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.
During the event on February 21, the opticians also treated their customers to a buffet-style food and drinks party and held a raffle in which the star prize was a designer pair of glasses.
The store, in High Street, raised more than £150 although staff are still welcoming donations from clients.
Store director Ravi Persand, said: “Once again the staff have shown what a community-focused store we are. We hold a number of fundraising events each year and we are a regular supporter of Cancer Research UK.
