A big thank you to all those who wear glasses and donated their old pairs to the Lions Great Spec Collect last month.
Altogether 984 pairs were handed in at Bannisters, Vision Express & Alan Tyler opticians and at the Knowle Fun Run. A SPEC-TACULAR result.
You will pleased to know they have already been packaged up ready to go off to our sister Lions Club in Chichester who act as a Lions hub to collect, sort and distribute them as far as eye clinics in Papua New Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria and Nepal.
This is what they looked like when being counted:
We have already been asked whether there will be a second Great Spec Collect next May? We are sure if enough people ask it will happen.
