Cardiff opticians promote services at Age Connects event
Staff from Specsavers on Queen Street, Cardiff, attended a charity event at a local theatre to provide advice to attendees about eye health and promote Specsavers’ hearcare services.
Provide information to public
Nicola Edwards, store manager, and Grace Frank, pre-registration optician, ran the Specsavers stand to provide members of the public with leaflets and advice on how to best look after their eye and ear health.
The event was organised by Age Connects, a charity that aims to change the negative perceptions of the elderly so that they can live better lives.
The all-day event took place at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff and included a play, lunch for guests and a host of information stalls.
‘Important to connect’
James Deavall, director of Specsavers in Cardiff, said: ‘Connecting with the community is extremely important to Specsavers and Age Connects is a great example of a charity that does just that.
‘It was great to have a presence at the Sherman Theatre and to be able to inform and help so many members of the public on how to best care for their eye and ear health.
‘At Specsavers, we’re always keen to take our services out of our stores to events that reach the wider community, and we look forward to attending again in the future.’
