Don't throw your old glasses away!
Spec Savers in Devonport  Rd  are now saving your old glasses - they collect them then pass them on to the Greerton Lions Club.
They in turn gather them up then send them to Auckland where they are cleaned and indexed. Then  N.Z. optomotrists take them to the Paicfic Islands where they can be passed on to those in need. The glasses you no  longer require may well be exactly what the visiting optomotrists has
prescribed. This is an on going project. Old glasses are welcomed at Spec Savers or any member of the  Greerton Lions Club.
