Specsavers stores across Western Australia raised funds by holding a Super Saturday event on July 18, with $5 from every eye test donated to local charity Bright Blue.
In addition to this a raffle for Bright Blue will be held on the night of the July 25 at the annual Specsavers WA State Ball.
Bright Blue is the Police Commissioner’s Fund for Sick Kids. Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan established Bright Blue in 2010 with a vision to assist in the prevention and treatment of childhood illnesses, particularly those linked to issues police officers see every day – including the abuse of drugs and alcohol, as well as social disadvantage.
