The Trongate audiologist team has donated 30 gifts to Age Scotland following its giving tree initiative.

Kind-hearted customers
Customers of Specsavers Trongate were able to select a gift tag from the store’s Christmas tree and donate a gift which the charity will give to older people in the local area.

The audiologists also asked customers to donate items such as puzzle and crossword books, confectionary, scarves, hats and gloves. What’s more, the store’s audiology team is donating a cutting-edge pair of hearing aids – with Age Scotland identifying a suitable candidate who would benefit from them.

Ryan Forbes, audiology director at Specsavers Trongate, said: 'Our giving tree has been incredibly successful. We’d like to thank our generous customers for donating gifts.

'It’s heartwarming to know that these gifts will go to older people in our community that Age Scotland supports. One of the recipients even called us to thank us and said it will likely be the only Christmas gift she receives this year.

'We also look forward to working with the charity to supply and fit hearing aids for someone who could really use them. We hope it makes a huge difference to their life.'

Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. It supports more than 700 community groups across Scotland.

Specsavers Trongate recently underwent a cutting-edge renovation, which included two new test rooms, the latest technology and a revamped audiology services area which features four hearing test rooms as well as a hearing aid charge bar and remote tuning services.
