The Specsavers team are urging people in Headingley to donate their old or unwanted glasses to its Vision Aid Overseas appeal, which aims to improve the eye health of those less fortunate in the developing world.
Collecting customers' old frames
Headingley Specsavers collected over 500 pairs of glasses for Vision Aid Overseas in 2014 and is once again collecting unused frames at the store at St Michael’s Court. Customers can get involved in the appeal by dropping their old frames into the in-store collection bin, which will then be donated to Vision Aid Overseas.
A word from the Director
James Pickersgill, store director at Headingley Specsavers, commented: ‘In Britain we are used to having access to excellent eyecare on our high streets but most people in Zambia are not as lucky so it’s important we do what we can to improve eye health there.
There must be thousands of spare specs lying around in drawers around the country that are no longer of use to their owners. All donations are welcome.’
