Castle Bromwich Lions Recycle For Sight
On World Sight Day, Castle Bromwich Lions are doing their bit to raise awareness of preventable blindness. Right now 39 million people in the world are blind, and 80% of these cases could have been prevented. 90% of those who are avoidably blind live in the developing world.
Castle Bromwich Lions are asking you to do your bit to help.
How many unused pairs of eye glasses do you have hiding in a drawer? Those glasses could transform somebody’s life.
In the past three months Castle Bromwich & District Lions have recycled over 1000 pairs of glasses for use by people in need in developing countries.
You could help by donating your old, unused eye glasses. Collection points for glasses are available at Ellis Opticians, Castle Bromwich and T Cox, Ward End.
