Specs recycling appeal at Streatham opticians

29 January, 2016

Streatham eyecare experts are renewing their campaign in aid of an international sight charity.

The team from Specsavers in Streatham have collected and donated glasses for charity, Vision Aid Overseas in recent years and are calling for residents to drop off their old and unwanted glasses in store as they champion the appeal once more.

More about the charity

Vision Aid Overseas - which operates in six African nations – collects, refurbishes and recycles specs and helps fund improvements to eyecare services for those less fortunate overseas.

A word from the store director

Sachin Patel, store director at Specsavers in Streatham, said: ‘Our community has always given generously to our Vision Aid Overseas specs collection box. We hope that by renewing our call for donations, it will remind people that they can put their specs to good use when they’re finished with them.

‘It’s such a simple initiative but it can really make a positive change in people’s lives. Pop by the store and drop off your old and unwanted specs today.’
