To mark Specsavers West WIckham's 10th anniversary, the store are kick-starting a fundraising drive for Deafblind UK.
Deafblind Awareness Week
After thanking the local community for their fantastic support on 17 June, the store is aiming to give back to them once again by raising money for the UK-based charity ahead of Deafblind Awareness Week (26 July – 2 July).
The charity supports people with combined sight and hearing loss, providing them with peer support to enable them to remain in their own homes and participate in their local communities.
Bamini adds: ‘We’ve had some really productive conversations with Deafblind UK and we feel it’s really important that we raise awareness of the inclusive nature of their work.
‘Dual sensory loss can be an incredibly isolating ailment and our fundraising efforts will be to ensure that people who have combined sight and hearing loss are given the autonomy and control over their lives that they richly deserve.’
