The team at Letterkenny recently hosted a Superhero Family Fun Day, raising €350 to go towards the refurbishment of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin’s ophthalmology unit. Specsavers stores across Ireland have committed to raising €100,000 for their charity of the year, and have just passed the halfway mark following successful fundraising activity throughout the year.

Brilliant effort

Store staff made a fantastic effort to dress up for the day and face painters were on hand to ensure visitors and passers-by really got in on the action. The Port Road store was fully decorated for Halloween, with raffles and collections taking place throughout the weekend.

Super turnout

Martina McMahon, Store Director at Specsavers Letterkenny, said of the fundraising activity: ‘We’re delighted that our staff were so enthusiastic and involved with the day’s events. It was also great to have local people stop by and really engage with all the action. We always find the people of Letterkenny town to be very generous when it comes to donating to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and the €350 raised is further testament to this. I’ve no doubt that Specsavers will hit our €100,000 target within the year.'

Great Cause

The Department of Ophthalmology at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin typically diagnoses and treats over 10,000 patients annually, being one of the busiest departments in the hospital.
