Staff at Specsavers in Motherwell are raising awareness of sight and hearing loss by altering their senses in a fundraising walk.

Blindfolds and earplugs

Wearing blindfolds and earplugs, willing walkers will make their way around Strathclyde Park on 27 September to raise money for charities Lanarkshire Deaf Club and Enable Scotland, as well as Hope for Autism.

The team at the Brandon Parade store was inspired to raise money through working with people living with a lot of different conditions – and staff are now encouraging customers to get involved in supporting the charity endeavour.

A word from our store director

Specsavers Motherwell store director Ian Moss said: ‘We meet people who are living with a variety of different conditions every day and we’re inspired by them.

‘We felt strongly that we should do something for these three charities as we’ve seen how they provide help and support for people across Lanarkshire and beyond.

‘We’re very proud to be taking part in the walk and we hope that customers will come along to support us on the day.’
