Great Spec-Collect under way early at Alan Tyler

When President Bob Thurtle arrived at Alan Tyler Optician in Dorridge to handover the box for collecting donated used spectacles he was promptly given a box full already collected – and collection is only due to last for the month of May!


“It seems all our opticians are keen to support our initiative,” said Bob. “I am delighted that they have already started collecting and hope that by the end of May we shall have several boxes full of glasses to send to our sister Lions Club in Chichester to be sorted and distributed as far as eye clinics in Papua New Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria and Nepal.”

Don’t forget to look in your drawers and bring your old ones along to:

Alan Tyler in Dorridge

Vision Express or Bannister’s in Knowle


The Heritage Centre or the Hub@Henley in Henley-in-Arden

Alternatively, why not bring them along to Arden Academy on Knowle Fun Run day Sunday 15 May, and drop them in a box in the Registration Hall
