Castlebar superhero fun day
Specsavers Castlebar opticians hosted a Superhero Family Fun Day event, raising €370 towards the refurbishment of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin’s ophthalmology unit.
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 store on Hopkins Road was fully decorated with raffles and collections running throughout the day.
Store Director, Niamh O’Connell 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 €370 raised over the weekend is further testament to this.’
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.
