Give your old specs for charity
Opticians are urging residents to dig out their old, unwanted glasses so they help people in Africa.
The glasses are recycled and the money raised is used to fund the charity’s work in developing countries. This includes giving people badly-needed eye tests and treatment, and training up local optometrists.
Last year the two shops collected more than 2,000 pairs of frames. Collection bins are in the stores.
