One of Bletchley Lions ongoing community service projects is the collection of used spectacles for distribution to third world countries. Recently we have passed to our fellow Lions at the Lions Club of Chichester more than a 1200 pairs.
A whole network of Lions clubs participate in collections nationwide and pass them to Chichester. They have made a special project of this work for many years and now run a highly efficient collection and distribution service.
The Lions Club of Bletchley currently has collection boxes at the following places:-
The RedHouse Surgery, Queensway Bletchley
Sceats Opticians, Queensway Bletchley
T J Lodge Opticians, Fenny Stratford and Wolverton
Walford & Round Opticians, Brackley
Costco, Milton Keynes
We can collect hearing aids and pass these on to the Lions Hearing Aid programme.
Tassimo Coffee Pods & biscuit wrappers
We are collecting these to support Tassimo Recycling MK, helping to fund Willen Hospice and other charities.
