Specsavers in Kings Lynn is hosting a collection drive for old and unused glasses in aid of the Lynn Lions Club and World Sight Day.
Request for glasses
Staff from Specsavers are asking locals to search high and low for old pairs of specs, as staff aim to collect a record number of glasses for the local charity.
Specsavers Kings Lynn store director Mark Willis said: ‘We collect glasses in store and the local Lions group collect them and distribute them. Our goal is to reach over 1,000 pairs of glasses by the end of the year.
‘At the end of the scheme the collected specs will be boxed and donated to the Lynn Lions Club for recycling.’
Kings Lynn Lions Club
Kings Lynn Lions is a service organisation with approximately 1.4 million members worldwide in 44,000 clubs. Internationally, Lions is recognised for service to the blind and visually impaired. At a more local level community service work can vary from small donations to help an individual buy a piece of equipment that might be needed to help improve their quality of life, or a set of football shirts for a local junior football team, through to something more major like the Message in a Bottle scheme.
