Donate your spectacles to Vision Aid Overseas and help the world to see.
Barnett Opticians is now affiliated with Vision Aid Overseas, a charity dedicated to transforming access to eye care services in developing countries. 10% of the world’s population are disabled or disadvantaged simply because they do not have spectacles: Vision Aid Overseas wants to do something about that.
The charity recycles old pairs of spectacles to raise money to support its international development work.
Simply hand in your spectacles to a member of staff, or put them in the recycling bin near the front of the practice, and we will make sure that they get to Vision Aid Overseas.
For further information about Vision Aid Overseas please visit their website, where we are now listed as a collecting centre: www.visionaidoverseas.org.
Here's a photo of our new recycling bin, with a suitably-themed "Valentine's Day" design!
