Temple tips and screw drivers, nose pads and pliers, plus lens cleaning products, have flooded into Vision Care for Homeless People centres, thanks to the generosity of optical supplier, Bondeye.
With the London and Birmingham centres supported by several public-spirited optical companies, all vital resources are put to good use, providing much needed support in an approachable environment for some of the country’s most disposed and vulnerable.
As Dave Walker, Bondeye Sales Manager, explained his company’s support –
“This charity offers such a vital service to the homeless and we are pleased to be able to help. We appreciate that to keep VCHP growing it needs ongoing support from organisations like ourselves and we are happy to make that commitment.”
Dave Walker is pictured with Charity Chair, Elaine Styles, who added –
“When the box of repair supplies was opened the volunteer dispensing optician said she felt as if she had woken up on Christmas day. She said it was much better than the equipment she works with in private practice.”
