Demonstrating its commitment to giving back to the community in which it operates, Specsavers Clondalkin recently made a generous donation to the local Men’s Shed so that they could purchase new tools. The recently established Men’s Shed in Clondalkin provides training and opportunities for men to learn new skills and crafts in a collaborative way.
Passionate about giving back
Specsavers Clondalkin Store Director Emma Conroy said, ‘We are passionate about giving back to and working with our local community and support a variety of causes, charities and community activities. Untreated hearing loss can lead to social isolation so we were delighted to sponsor the Clondalkin Men’s Sheds, which provides a safe, friendly and inclusive environment where men can gather and work on meaningful projects together.’
Clondalkin community Men’s Shed
The Clondalkin Community Men’s Shed is a dedicated and welcoming meeting place where men get together to share their skills and knowledge with others and learn new skills such as wood turning, art, horticulture and wood work. It is open to all men regardless of age, background or ability. The shed can also be a place to just come and sit for a while, have a chat over a cup of tea or play a game of pool thus improving the health and wellbeing of the men participating.
