Specsavers Superheroes on a mission to raise funds for Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin

Ballina opticians hosted a Superhero Family Fun Day and raised €135 towards the refurbishment of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin’s ophthalmology unit.

Local superheroes

Store staff made a fantastic effort to dress up for the day’s superhero theme and face painters were on hand to ensure visitors and passers-by really got in on the action. The Tone Street store was fully decorated with raffles and collections running throughout the day.

Brilliant effort

Store Director, Eva Roache said: ‘We’re delighted that all of our staff dressed up and were so enthusiastic and involved with the day’s events. It was also great to have local people stop in and really engage with the face painters and Specsavers staff. We always find the people of Mayo to be very generous when it comes to donating to Crumlin and the €135 raised over the weekend is further testament to this.’

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.
