Our Community

 

 

Leongatha Optometrists has always been involved in the local community. We believe in order for a community to thrive it needs to be supported by local people and local businesses.

 

This year we are proud to have supported the Leongatha CFA, we raised $610 in the month of March and hope to make our fundraiser an annual event.

 

Every month we collect pre-loved and unused prescription glasses and sunglasses to be donated to the Lions Club. Each year from our practice alone, hundreds of glasses get donated to men, women and children in need all over the world through the Lions Club program. Help this great cause and make sure you donate your unused glasses instead of throwing them out.

 

We will be fundraising for Make a Wish Foundation in October 2019 and hope to get your support to raise funds for this amazing charity that helps children with life-threatening illnesses realise a life changing wish. There will be a collection tin located in our practice and we will donate $5.00 from every sale of glasses for the month of October.

 

Twice a year we visit the nursing homes; Koorooman house and Alchera house, to make sure the elderly who are unable to leave get the eye health care they need. Without this service these lovely people would be without basic healthcare.

 

Clubs we sponsor each year include: Leongatha Bowls Club, Meeniyan Bowls Club, Fish Creek Bowls, Leongatha Lions Club and Port Phillip Showjumping Club just to name a few.
