The Greenock team raised £165 for a new Inverclyde mental health charity by wearing Christmas jumpers and festive accessories throughout December.

 

Colleagues at the Oak Mall store decided to take part in the fundraising in order to support Man On Inverclyde, a charity suicide prevention peer support service set up in February this year.

 

The team decorated both themselves and the store for the Christmas season with an aim to spread some festive cheer while collecting donations from customers visiting the store.

Mental health support

 

Man On Inverclyde provides mental health support for men across Inverclyde, through support sessions in person at their Dellingburn St hub or via online Zoom meetings. They also organise a weekly Walk The Talk session every Saturday at 9:30 am at Battery Park, where people can exercise to start their weekend and promote positive wellbeing.

 

All money raised will go toward the charity’s Christmas projects, including their Christmas Day event which provides a place for people to go on the day ensuring that no one spends their Christmas alone.


Happy to help

 

Claire Kincaid, store director at Specsavers Greenock, said: ‘We’re always happy to help support fantastic local causes and the work that the team at Man On Inverclyde do is incredibly vital for people in the area, especially around this time of year.

 

‘It’s been a challenging year for us all, but we’re hoping that everyone visiting the store is able to help us support this fantastic charity and help to spread a bit more Christmas cheer this year while raising funds for those in need of support.’
