Specsavers Ringwood is supporting Vision Aid Overseas (VAO) by reminding people to donate to the charity this New Year.

Millions affected with poor eyecare

Poor vision and lack of glasses affects over 650 million people in the world, so VAO exists to help African communities in six developing countries who require eyecare services.

Specsavers Ringwood store director, Bruce Fitzgerald said: ‘We want to encourage people to think outside the box this year.

Continued support

‘It’s important that we continue to support Vision Aid Overseas by donating as much as possible. People can do this by handing over their spare old or unused glasses, or simply by donating some money to go towards improving eye services in African countries.’

To donate, visit Specsavers Ringwood at 2, The Furlong Centre.
