Spectacles Collections

specpicWe collect old or unwanted spectacles which we send to Chichester Lions Club, who then sort them, grade them and despatch them onto Third World countries, where most of the population cannot afford to have their eyes tested or buy glasses. You can read more about this HERE. Dedicated specialists, Lions volunteers and other organisations then hold clinics where they test eyes and prescribe a suitable pair of glasses from the ones received. For many of these people this is the first time they have been able  to see properly in years and the difference it makes to their lives is remarkable. For some, it means that they are able to work again and support their families, while others can see their children and grandchildren clearly for the first time in years.

Anybody wishing to donate old spectacles can deposit them in the collecting box at:

Ellis Opticians, Bradford Road, Castle Bromwich
