Used spectacles

Recycle for sight logoOver the past 16 years and up to the year ending 30th June 2019 Shirley Lions had collected 105,636 pairs of old, used or broken spectacles. For the year commencing 1st July 2019 up to 30th March 2019 a further 6,400 have been collected. These are repaired, sorted and graded before being shipped out to third world countries where they are able to make such a difference to someone's sight. We are now extending this scheme by collecting old, used or broken hearing aids and so far have 89 ready for shipment. To donate your old spectacles or hearing aids please contact Lion Mary Hanson on 0345 833 9547. Alternately spectacles can be dropped off at the following collection points in and around Shirley:
