One Chorley-based optometrist is on a mission to educate young people in the local community about optometry as a future career option.
Suzanne Dennis (pictured) will take part in a careers fair at Parklands High School next week (February 8). The fair will be attended by more than 450 year nine, 10 and 11 pupils at the school. The invite comes after the independent opticians held a series of career evening in practice last year.
Ms Dennis said: “Before Christmas we held our own careers evenings at our Eccleston and Standish practices and received excellent feedback from the students who attended.
“Optometry isn’t always something people think about as a career choice. I hope by attending the careers fair it will open their eyes to what is an interesting and extremely varies profession.”
