Specsavers Liffey Valley and Clondalkin Raise €1,000 to “Help Children Hear” Staff at the two Dublin stores banded together for the joint fundraiser with proceeds donated to the Cochlear Implant Department at Beaumont Hospital. Each store held their own charity events over the last two weeks and combined the funds to donate to Beaumont Hospital’s Cochlear Implant Department which helps young children and adults who have difficulty hearing. Staff at Liffey Valley held an in-store charity cycle and bucket collection which raised in excess of €500 while Clondalkin Specsavers staff hosted a charity Bake Sale and collected more than €400 for the organisation.

Liffey Valley Retail Director, Conor Dewey said: “This is just the start of our fundraising campaign for the Cochlear Implant Department. The money donated so far will be given directly to this charity to help babies, and adults, who desperately need this service! We plan to continue our fundraising efforts into 2019.” Sean Daly, Clondalkin store manager, said: “We are delighted with the support that we have received from the community here in Clondalkin, people have been very generous. We look forward to continuing to raise money for this very worthwhile cause.” The team at Specsavers is passionate about fundraising with more in-store events planned before the end of the year for different charity organisations. There will also be an Open Day at the Liffey Valley store on Wednesday, October 24th when staff will be highlighting the new Audio Pad and Frame Styler technologies available for customers.
