Specsavers Balbriggan is thrilled to announce that it has raised in excess of €2,600 in aid of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin. The store has experienced enormous support and kindness from the local community, making this contribution possible.

The store raised the much-needed funds through in-store activities throughout 2016, including a charity Santa Claus visit in the Millfield Shopping Centre with customers donating generously.
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.
Complex eye conditions
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.
Specsavers Balbriggan would like to thank the local community for their unwavering support, attending in-store events and donating generously to this worthy cause.
