WORLD SIGHT DAY – THIS THURSDAY (8th OCTOBER)
We, as Bridlington Lions, celebrate World Sight Day and internationally through out the year, helping to draw attention of the issues with sight and vision across the world.
Bridlington Lions do their bit by collecting spectacles which are going to be disposed of, sort and count them, and then parcel them up and send them down to one of our sorting depot from there they will be sent to Calgary in Canada.
There they are inspected and sent on to areas which are in need of help in providing spectacles free of charge to adults and children who would never be able to have the opportunity of having their own pair of spectacles – which enables them to go on to read and write and hopefully have a better life in the future.
Any spectacles not fit for purpose will be recycled.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed over the years – it really does make a difference ??
