Opticians are celebrating a major boost for their charity campaign to help the people of Zambia to see clearly.
Specsavers in Hull managed to collect more than 30,000 pairs of unwanted glasses from customers last year.
Working with Vision Aid Overseas, staff and customers at Specsavers stores across Hull have shown their generosity.
They did this by bringing a fantastic number of old glasses to the store for donation.
The project was hugely successful in 2019, and the team is hopeful that donations will continue to be received throughout the year.
Neil Pinkney, Store Director at Specsavers in Hull on Jameson Street said;
“We would like to thank all of our customers who helped us with this project. Please do keep bringing in your glasses. Every single one will make a difference.”
“In a country where opticians’ services are readily available, such as the UK, it is easy to take our vision for granted.”
“In the developing world, the provision of optical services has a real impact on peoples’ lives.”
“So check your drawers and dig down the back of the sofa – your unwanted specs can go to good use.”
All the collected glasses are recycled and the money made is used to help provide eye care in developing countries.
