Static cycle to raise funds for Crumlin
Specsavers Dundalk will put their wheels in motion, as they hold a static cycle to raise much needed funds for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin this Saturday, 03 June. The cycle will take place in Market Square, with many local businesses in attendance on the day, providing a host of special offers.
Seeing as summer is now upon us, the Dundalk store will also be offering a discount of €60 on designer sunglasses on the day for all customers to avail of.
The day will have a 'Lolly for Crumlin' theme, meaning everyone who donates on the day will receive a lollipop. The store is asking all customers and passers-by to drop in and show their support for the very worthy cause.
All money raised will go directly to the development of the Ophthalmology Unit in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin which continues to make a huge difference to the lives of children and their families in Ireland.

Specsavers presented Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin with a cheque for €120,000 in 2016 and announced that it would be extending its commitment to the hospital by pledging to raise an additional €100,000 for the ophthalmology unit.
The service provides care to children suffering from common eye conditions, such as squints, which if left untreated can result in sight problems. In addition, the service offers evaluation and treatment of other complex eye conditions such as congenital cataract, congenital glaucoma and visual problems associated with neurological disease.
