The team at Specsavers in Nuneaton will be joining a local market in Market Place in order to raise awareness for good eye health and collect donations for international charity, Vision Aid Overseas (VAO).
On Wednesday 3 August and Wednesday 10 August, regular market-goers can expect to see the Specsavers stall with optical dispensers on hand to provide advice and answer any questions.
A worthwhile cause
VAO collection boxes will also be stationed at the stall to collect old and unwanted specs. These will be recycled and the materials sold in order to raise funds to transform access to eyecare in developing countries.
‘VAO is such a worthwhile cause as many people in developing countries are disadvantaged by poor eyecare and a lack of access to the resources they really need,’ comments store director, Gerry Hughes. ‘We hope that as many people as possible can find the time to drop in their old specs at our stall; all donations are very welcome.
‘We are also helping to raise awareness in the local community regarding the importance of getting your eyes checked regularly and the significance of having good eye health. At Specsavers we want to encourage people to come to us and ask about any concerns they may have.’
