Tralee support Vision Aid Overseas with charity cycle
The team at Specsavers in Tralee will raise money for Vision Aid Overseas (VAO) by holding a stationary charity cycle on Saturday, 31 March.
Specsavers Ireland has worked closely with Vision Aid Overseas for the last decade helping in the fight against poverty in developing countries by transforming access to eye care. The Tralee store is hoping to raise vital funds for the charity. Specsavers hope that customers will also volunteer to jump on the bike and cycle a kilometre or two to add to the fundraising total.
Staff members Éanna Brassil from Specsavers Tralee and Miriam Murphy from the Specsavers Headford Road will travel to Ethiopia in May to volunteer for the charity, conducting eye tests, educating people about healthy eyes and providing unwanted glasses.
Specsavers Tralee store director Maura O’Donnell said: ‘We are delighted to support Éanna’s trip to Ethiopia with Vision Aid Overseas and are very proud of him for taking on this challenging experience. We hope that the local community will also show their support by joining us in store on our fundraising day on Saturday 31 March to cheer us on during the charity cycle.’
Vision Aid Overseas
Vision Aid Overseas provides eye examinations and glasses for people in the developing world. Each year Irish stores collect and donate around 50,000 glasses to the charity. These are then recycled and the money made is put towards Vision Aid Overseas’ charity work.
