Guide dog Bronx and trainer Julia Mcclellan from Guide Dogs visited uvex to accept a sizeable cheque, the result of uvex's pledge of £10 for every sales call made during one week in May.

Using the correct safety eyewear can prevent up to 90% of eye injuries in the workplace, so appropriate and well-fitting, comfortable eyewear not only ensures it is fit for purpose, but also helps increase all-important wearer compliance.
