Team support his cause

Adam says thank you
Adam says: 'I am overwhelmed by the support of our customers and the team. It was an amazing experience and an honour to help a charity that is close to all our hearts. Thank you all for your donations.'
Vision Aid Overseas
The charity raises vital income to support activities overseas that include giving people all-important eye tests and treatment by training up local optometrists. The role they play is vital in reaching nearly 640 million people (10% of the world's population) who are believed to be disadvantaged by poor vision and a lack of glasses.
