Specsavers Hear Care in Coleraine came onboard recently to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institute’s fundraising golf day at Royal Portrush Golf Club.

Over £2,300 raised

Over 160 lady golfers played the Valley Links course to raise over £2,300 for the local branch of RNLI. Specsavers Hear Care provided the prizes across all categories.

RNLI’s invaluable work

Specsavers Hear Care director Joann Torrens said: ‘The RNLI does invaluable work from its base in Portrush saving lives quickly and effectively. We were delighted to play our part in helping to raise funds towards volunteer training and maintaining equipment form boots to boats. It also gave us the opportunity to spread the hear care message amongst the lady golfers.’

Free hearing screenings

Specsavers Coleraine provides free three-minute hearing screenings, with no need to book an appointment. The screeners let customers know whether they would benefit from a full hearing test, which takes about an hour.
