CHEDDAR Vale Lions Club is supporting Recycle for Sight month and is urging people to donate unwanted spectacles.
The group has collection boxes stationed in doctors’ surgeries in Cheddar, Axbridge, Winscombe, Wedmore and the opticians in Cheddar.
The glasses are renovated and given out to needy people worldwide.
Janet Clark, Lions vice president, said: “Our sight is a precious commodity and Lions worldwide raise money towards the prevention of avoidable blindness, eye surgery to restore sight and testing to prevent loss and maintain sight.
“If you have any unwanted spectacles, please donate them to the Lions club which will ensure they are put to good use.”
