Collecting Old Spectacles


Every month a member collects old spectacles from:

Ilminster - Richard Stent Optometrist, the Ilminster Medical Centre, Tesco Stores and the Church View Surgery, Broadway.

Chard - The Tawstock Medical Centre, Stephen Beswetherick Optician and Boots Opticians.

South Petherton - The Community Centre and the Hospital.

The spectacles are then boxed up and sent to Chichester Lions Club where they are sorted and graded before being sent to developing countries where they are dispensed at Lions-Sponsored eye clinics.

If you have any old glasses lying around then please drop them in at one of these local collecting points. They will eventually find their way to a deserving case.
