Funds go to PMH
A BELMONT optometrist is raising funds to help support Princess Margaret Hospital. Throughout May, Specsavers Belmont Forum will fundraise for PMH’s ophthalmology department through charity donation boxes and tokens issued for glasses purchased, with a subsequent donation made from the store partners to PMH. The department cares for premature babies right up to adolescents with a range of eye conditions, from ocular tumours to complications from juvenile chronic arthritis and more. “The work the PMH ophthalmology department does is indispensable for children who have been diagnosed with serious illness,” store partner Pradeepa Murugiah said.
