Working with our sister Lions club in Chichester, your old pairs of used glasses are collected, sorted and distributed each month to eye clinics as far as Papa New Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria and Nepal. Don't worry if your spectacles are broken as they will be recycled for their scrap metal and the funds used to support eye-related projects both in the UK and overseas. In this enterprise, Knowle and Dorridge Lions Club are being supported by:
Alan Tyler in Dorridge
Bannister Eyecare in Knowle
Vision Express in Knowle.
Please take your old glasses to any of these opticians.
The wonderful support we are being given both by our residents and opticians is being mirrored by many other U.K. Lions Clubs so much so we have opened a second Sorting Centre in Birmingham to compliment our existing Chichester Sorting Centre.
The residents of B93 ably assisted by our three local opticians will enable us to deliver 500 pairs of used specs to our Birmingham Sorting Office this month.
Well done B93. Thanks for your support.
In 2022, we beat out target of collecting 2022 pairs of glasses, reaching a total of 2200.
We are now hoping to collect even more in 2023.
