Specsavers in Glenrothes has amassed hundreds of pairs of old and unwanted glasses to donate to eyecare charity Vision Aid Overseas (VAO).
The opticians in Kingdom Centre teamed up with senior pupils at Glenrothes High School to encourage locals to donate their old specs which enabled them to donate more than 700 pairs of frames to VAO.
Great to raise awareness
Store director Stewart Wilson said: ‘We welcome donations of old and unwanted glasses in store all year round and we recycle them regularly.
‘It was great to have the pupils from Glenrothes High involved to raise awareness of our collection and the work that Vision Aid does.
‘We would like to encourage locals to continue to recycle their glasses with us and help Specsavers Glenrothes support the work of this vital eyecare charity.’
Specsavers and Vision Aid Overseas have a joint commitment to provide eyecare for all living in Zambia. The glasses collected are handed over to VAO which recycles the specs and uses the funds generated to provide eyecare to those who need it in the developing world.
