STAFF at the Specsavers store in Abbeycentre are getting their collection buckets ready in a bid to raise money for Action MS.

The Newtownabbey Specsavers team will be out and about at the Longwood Road shopping complex on Saturday, October 13, dressed to impress in their Action MS t-shirts, chatting to the local community and collecting donations from passers by. Donations can also be made in-store on the day.

Store Director, Tony McGinn commented: “Among other symptoms, MS can have a hugely detrimental effect on a person’s eyesight. That’s the reason Specsavers had no hesitation in getting involved in such a worthy cause. Some people may suffer from symptoms such as double vision, blurred vision, a partial squint, rapid eye movements or pain in one or both eyes. This visual disturbance is often worse or only apparent during MS attacks. It can often prompt a fear of blindness.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for Specsavers’ staff from across all 17 stores in Northern Ireland to help make a difference.”
