Local pensions services provider MyCSP, has donated £850, raised through the MyCSP Community Fund together with donations from employee partners, to help with critical eye research at St Paul’s Eye Unit, which is situated in the Royal Liverpool Hospital.

MyCSP employee, Christine Spruce, recently suffered a detached retina, requiring her to have urgent surgery at the Hospital in order to save the sight in her left eye.

Christine Spruce, employee at MyCSP, said: “A detached retina is a very common thing that can happen to anyone. However, I was overwhelmed by the compassion and respect that I received in my treatment at St Paul’s Eye Unit. I was really quite frightened, but Mr Pearce, the Consultant Surgeon and every member of St Paul’s staff that I came into contact with were so kind and reassuring. What they do is nothing short of a miracle and I just wanted to say thank you. I am grateful to MyCSP that they have enabled me to do so via a donation.”

David Boardman, Communications Director said, “Our staff at MyCSP are committed to giving back to the local community and they can do this through applying for donations via the MyCSP Community Fund, which was launched to help deserving causes exactly like this one. Christine is a valued employee and so it is great to have her fully fit and back at work. This is thanks to all the hard work and dedication of the eye hospital staff.”
