Eglinton Eyecare raises £663 for TinyLife

The opticians plan to raise £3000 for the charity by the end of the year

Fundraising by Eglinton EyeCare
Derry-based independent Eglinton Eyecare has raised £663 through a raffle held in practice on 1 June for premature baby charity TinyLife.

TinyLife is Eglinton Eyecare’s chosen charity of 2019, with a fundraising target of £3000 set by the Northern Ireland practice by the end of the year.

Owner and optometrist at Eglinton Eyecare, Jean Kelly, said: “We would like to thank everyone who supported our fundraising efforts on the day and helped to make it such a success.”

“We were absolutely thrilled to raise so much money for TinyLife, helping them to support as many families as possible. We are now looking forward to our next fundraising event – please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates,” she added.

The charity provides support to families with premature and ill babies, as well as supporting research to reduce the number of premature and ill babies in Northern Ireland.

Other fundraising activity planned by Eglinton Eyecare includes pub quizzes, a collection in Tesco, a Christmas raffle and the chance to meet Santa at the local Christmas craft fair.
