John Laverty Opticians all set to raise funds for Guide Dogs

05-Jun-2017


Brian McKeown an Optometrist at Laverty Opticians will be cycling 100 miles to raise much needed funds for guide dogs. At work Brian meets people with various visual needs. We can take our sight for granted and imagining how we would live without the sense of sight is a scary thought.

Guide Dogs do a great job at training dogs to give visually impaired people their independence back and lobbying for the rights of visually impaired and blind people.

In the practices I work in there will be a guess the name of the puppy competition. I've also planned a "Walk for a hot dog" walk on Portstewart Strand on Sunday 11th June to help raise funds. Keep your eyes on our Facebook page @ John Laverty Opticians for more info.

The cycle is through London to Surrey and back again, finishing in Hyde Park. There will be some Olympic worthy big climbs and there will be over 27,000 other cyclists on the roads, so the training has begun.
