Specsavers presented a cheque for over €6000 to ONCE earlier this month.

The company raised €6,107 for the charity Fundación ONCE para la Atención de Personas con Sordoceguera (FOAPS) between July and December 2017.

José Ángel Moral-Tajadura, Retail and Business Development Manager for Specsavers Spain presented a cheque to Marcelo Rosado, ONCE representative for Andalucía, Ceuta and Melilla and José Miguel Luque Gómez, Director of ONCE for the areas of Málaga, Córdoba y Melilla at the ONCE offices in Malaga.

The money raised will fund 407 hours of interpreting for deaf and blind people in Spain in 2018. As well as funds, the campaign raised awareness of the issues that the deaf-blind face and the  work that FOAPS does.

FOAPS’ Director Esther Requena Olea commented “We would like to say thank you for the €6,107 donated by Specsavers Opticas to FOAPS that will fund interpreters to allow them to continue their important work. FOAPS wants to sincerely thank you for your collaboration and hope that we can continue this work in the future, as your support in raising awareness of deaf-blindness and funds for this important cause has been very valuable.”
