Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time
In just about any home, one can find a pair of spectacles that are no longer being used. That same pair of spectacles can change another person's life.
Swindon Lions Recycle for Sight
That's why we run the Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help.
Throughout the year, Lions and other volunteers collect used spectacles from venues around Swindon.
Spectacles come in all conditions, shapes and sizes so we pass them on to Medico France in Le Harve. Medico France have the necessary equipment to clean and grade the spectacles ready for use in eye camps in Africa, India and Eastern Europe where they will have the greatest impact.
Recycling Spectacles – How You Can Help
Donate spectacles and change someone's life. Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive.
Everyday, our recycled spectacles program does all of this and more. Here's how you can donate spectacles and help.
Drop Your Spectacles in Lions Collection Boxes
You can drop off your usable spectacles at Swindon Lions-sponsored collection boxes in and around Swindon. For information specific to locations in your community, contact us.
