The London Wall store has encouraged all local residents to donate their specs in aid of international sight charity Vision Aid Overseas which helps people living in poverty to have access to eye care. December also saw the team put on their Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save The Children.
The team collected throughout the year more than 500 pairs of used and unwanted glasses from the community to help improve access to eyecare services in developing nations and raised £84 in total for Save The Children.
The director says…
Store director, Mo El-Turki, said: ‘We’re amazed at the generous contributions this year for both charities, and it’s wonderful that the sale of the reusable materials from these glasses will help create a positive effect on the lives of people less fortunate.’
Dig those specs out
Mo adds: ‘We’re going to continue the collection of specs, as it’s been so successful, and we are sure there are still so many more people that may have unwanted glasses lying in a drawer somewhere!
'All donations are welcome so why not have a spring clean to start the New Year and bring your glasses in store for a worthy cause?’
