Eyesite Helps Vision Aid Overseas Bring Lives Into Focus
Eyesite is a long-standing supporter of Vision Aid Overseas, a charity dedicated to helping people in the developing world whose lives are blighted by poor eyesight and a lack of eyecare services. Our support for Vision Aid Overseas goes beyond just fundraising. We also provide valuable practical help and professional guidance, including sending our qualified staff to Africa to work as volunteers in the Vision Aid Overseas clinics.
For 2017, we are very proud to be one of the charity’s top tier sponsors. Eyesite’s Director, David Samuel, ran the Virgin London Marathon in 2014, in aid of Vision Aid Overseas.
How You Can Help
You can help underprivileged people in Africa enjoy the same access to eye care that we take for granted by collecting and bringing in your old spectacles to your nearest Eyesite optician practice. You can find your nearest branch here. These are recycled by Vision Aid Overseas to extract any materials that can be sold to raise funds; in 2013, £25,000 was raised from the extracted gold alone, so please don’t just throw your old specs in the bin!
You can also make a donation at www.vao.org.uk, raise funds through sponsorship or by becoming a member of Vision Aid Overseas today. For more information or to make a donation, please visit the Vision Aid Overseas website.
