Specsavers Dunfermline raise cash for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf People charity

Specsavers Dunfermline has raised £1,537.38 for charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People during a fundraising cycling event.

Cycle-a-thon

The staff put their best foot forward, cycling 874 miles on a static bike outside the store over the course of a week. Donning fancy dress, the team completed the cycle-a-thon which covered the distance between John O’Groats and Lands’ End.

The store, which previously held a coffee and cake fundraising event for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People in June, has now raised a total of £1,749.53 this year for the charity.

Brilliant charity

Grace Hepburn, store director at Specsavers Dunfermline, said: ‘The staff had a fantastic time during the cycling event and we would like to thank all of our kind customers who donated money towards this great cause.

‘Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a brilliant charity and provides such a valuable service, making a big difference to people across the country. We’re delighted to have this opportunity to offer our support.’

Specsavers Audiologists and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People celebrated 10 years of partnership earlier this year.
