This Blue Monday Specsavers Watford, in partnership with Samaritans, raised almost £100 for awareness of mental health support with the Brew Monday charity day.
As well as giving out Brew Monday teabags, the store donated £2 from every hearing test that was conducted that day. And it wasn’t only Specsavers that wanted to get involved, local supermarkets also donated cupcakes that the staff could sell, brightening people’s mood on Blue Monday!
Loss of hearing linked to depression
Audiologists at the Watford store were keen to get involved with the campaign as hearing loss can impact your mental wellbeing, leading to other health conditions like depression or feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Emma Handford, audiology director at Specsavers in Watford, says: ‘The good news is, we can help. Audiology has made great strides over the years that will surprise you so there is no need to suffer in silence.’
Come into store for a chat
There is nothing lonelier than a life without conversation, particularly during the most depressing month of the year, so come into store to get expert, professional advice – there are no silly questions when it comes to hearing.
