In a show of continued support of the communities affected by the bushfires burning across Australia, Specsavers will donate $5 from every sale in January, up to $100,000 to support bushfire relief appeals.
Specsavers donated $18,000 to The Salvation Army’s Disaster Appeal in December 2019, to support the communities affected by the devastating bushfires in New South Wales and Queensland before Christmas.
Following on from the devastation we have seen across Australia since then, Specsavers has pledged an additional $100,000, to be split across several local organisations including the NSW Rural Fire Service, Victorian Bushfire Relief Appeal, SA State Emergency Relief Fund, and the Salvation Army Disaster Appeal.
In addition to these donations, Specsavers optical stores will provide immediate support to fire-affected communities by providing replacement frames and lenses for customers directly affected by the fires. Stores with audiology services will also provide replacement hearing aid batteries to impacted customers.
The entire Specsavers team is unified by the will to support those impacted. Our thoughts are with all communities, inspirational firefighters, volunteers and families affected by the horrific bushfires across Australia.
