Thou­sands of spec­ta­cles do­nated to the Zam­bia

Oldham Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

RES­I­DENTS have helped peo­ple in the Zam­bia to see clearly.

Almost 2,000 pairs of glasses were do­nated to the Spec­savers stores in Old­ham and Roy­ton as part of its Work­ing with Vi­sion Aid Over­seas cam­paign.

The glasses are re­cy­cled for cash do­na­tions which are used to help de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

Rod Ful­lalove, store di­rec­tor, said: “We would re­ally like to thank all of our cus­tomers who helped us in this project.

“In a coun­try where op­ti­cians’ ser­vices are read­ily avail­able, such as the UK, it is easy to take our vi­sion for granted.”

Both stores are still col­lect­ing glasses. Visit spec­savers.co.uk for de­tails.
