Holsworthy & District Lions produced a window display at local solicitors Peter, Peter & Wright promoting their message in a bottle scheme, glasses recycling project and giving details of other projects undertaken by the Lions throughout the world. Glasses are collected by Holsworthy & District Lions and sent on to Chichester Lions who have been collecting spectacles since 1967. It became a major project for Chichester Lions in 1980 with the delivery of 700 assorted specs to the Missionary Optical Society in Devon for use in their clinics in Kenya and India. In 1985 Chichester Lions linked up with the Le Havre Lions and Medico France and over the following five years some 100,000 specs, 43,000 lenses, and 10,000 frames were sent to Medico France while still delivering to M.O.S. as many pairs of glasses as they needed. In 1988, another outlet was established through Vision Aid Overseas, and in 1990 Boots the Chemist and Help The Aged joined Chichester Lions in a national campaign which produced 460,000 pairs of specs in six months. These were sent all over the world including to the Cameroon, Senegal, the Ivory Coast, Sri Lanka, India, Jamaica, Bolivia and Brazil. Chichester Lions do a fantastic job and Holsworthy & District Lions are happy to help them in any way we can.
