THE team at Specsavers Limerick are getting ready to host an evening of Cocktails, Cuisine and Style for their charity fashion show in aid of the Hope Foundation. The event will take place on November 23 at 7PM in the Cornstore, Limerick, and is in association with the Holman Lee Model Agency.
The glamourous night will consist of a prosecco reception, followed by a three-course meal and a fashion show including top Irish designers and retailers such as Aoife McNamara, Brown Thomas, Ela Maria, Catherine McCormack, Be Fabulous, Marian Murphy Cooney and more.
Maintaining a prominent role across Limerick, Specsavers adds to the city’s shopping experience, bringing both style and healthcare services to the high street. Specsavers Cruises St, Crescent Shopping Centre, and Castletroy are thrilled to sponsor the fashion show and emphasise their own contribution to the thriving fashion industry in Ireland, particularly in their own locality.


Boasting a range of designer frames from top brands like Vivienne Westwood Kylie Minogue, DKNY and Karen Millen, Specsavers know a thing or two about stylish eyewear. Whether you are seeking frames as an accessory, need glasses to improve your vision or want to invest in some high-quality sunglasses, look no further than the Specsavers Limerick.
Boasting professional and skilled staff together with unparalleled customer service, Specsavers is truly a one stop shop for high end designer frames from some of the most fashionable names around. Priced from just €199, these include single vision lenses with a scratch-resistant treatment and are available as part of Specsavers’ 2 for 1 offer.
Specsavers’ relationship with The Hope Foundation began in 2017 when Lisa Walsh, decided to embark on a mission, along with other Specsavers colleagues, to help provide accessible eyecare to those less fortunate in Kolkata, India.
With the help of donations from customers and Specsavers themselves, The Hope Foundation has so far been able to conduct over 151 free eye check-up camps, treating more than 25,000 people, dispensing more than 14,000 pairs of glasses and providing more than 9,000 free medicines to patients.
They have also performed almost 1,200 eye surgeries in the Hope hospital and treated 6,525 patients through 368 eye clinics at Hope hospital.
Specsavers Limerick stores’ director, Sinead Clohessy commented on the charity fashion show: “As each Specsavers store is locally owned by an optician and audiologist, community involvement is incredibly important to us.
“The fashion show gives us a great opportunity to support local fashion businesses in County Limerick, to help promote themselves and highlight all that is great about county Limerick fashion and style. It also gives us the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for The Hope Foundation. We hope that our customers support the evening and we look forward to seeing everyone there on the night.”
Tickets are priced at €65 and can be booked by calling the Cornstore on (061) 609 000. They can be purchased in sets of eight or ten.
