Specsavers Portsmouth has collected over 300 pairs of glasses for the charity Vision Aid Overseas (VAO).
Providing glasses to Zambia
Specsavers, located at 205 Commercial Road, has been asking people to donate their old and unused glasses to the charity, which go towards providing eyecare services for people in Zambia.
Generous Portsmouth community
Store director Julia Moulton says: ‘We’re so grateful for the generosity of the Portsmouth community.
‘We’re keen to keep up this drive by encouraging more people to donate – we want to hit a target of 500 by the end of July. It’s important that we provide opportunities for those who don’t have access to good quality eyecare services.’
