Arbroath staff to get silly for sound
Specsavers in Arbroath held a fantastic awareness day, raising £100 for Sound Seekers, a UK charity helping people with hearing loss in Africa.
Staff at the opticians wore costumes themed around the film Grease and donated funds to the charity for the privilege.
Staff also tucked in to a ‘Sweet for Sound’ cake sale and customers had the chance to enter the store’s ‘Song for Sound’ raffle. Raffle tickets cost £1 and customers were asked to choose their ticket by selecting a song from a list of 40 to be in with the chance of winning £20.
Chloe Smith, pre-registration Hearcare assistant at Specsavers in Arbroath, said: ‘All our staff loved getting a bit silly in store for sound seekers!
‘We’re very pleased to have a good total to donate to this very worthy charity and would like to thank our customers for their support and kind donations.
‘In addition to supporting those with hearing loss in Africa, we’re dedicated to helping those on our doorstep with a fantastic Hearcare team in store. Our staff are always on hand to offer advice on our hearing services, hearing loss, protection and prevention.’
Sound Seekers is dedicated to helping those with hearing impairments, particularly children, in the poorest communities of the developing world. Some of the vital work the charity carries out includes supporting hospital staff to be trained in basic audiology, raising awareness of the causes of hearing loss and delivering teacher training, materials and equipment to help provide schooling and education to hearing impaired children.
