The Wilton Specsavers team have once again hopped on their bikes in aid of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and raised a fantastic €1,100 this spring.

Static cycle

The opticians store staff put the wheels in motion for another in-store static cycle event following a year of successful fundraisers for the refurbishment of the hospital’s ophthalmology unit.

Fantastic effort

Deirdre Moore, store director said: ‘We’re delighted that our staff were so enthusiastic and involved with the day’s events and we are so impressed by the generous donations made by customers on the day. The €1,100 raised surpassed our expectations and we really couldn’t have done it without the fantastic support from our customers.'

Ophthalmology at Our Lady's

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