New clinic to open – First Base in Brighton is to be the latest focus for Vision Care for Homeless People, with an opportunity to find out more about volunteering at the new centre on 25 June.
For several years the charity has been providing a comprehensive eye examination, as well as new spectacles when needed, to homeless and other vulnerable people. Well over 5000 eye examinations and spectacles, all completely free of charge, have been provided via the five clinics.
With four centres in London and one in Birmingham, the sixth is to be Brighton, which will officially open its doors in September.
“As a charity we rely on goodwill to be able to provide our service. We are fortunate to have received some generous donations, which have provided equipment, supplies and funding to cover running costs, but we also need the support of the local optometrist and dispensing staff to volunteer their time,” said Will Pearce, the Charity Co-Ordinator.
To find out more about volunteering in Brighton do come and visit First Base on:
Date: 25th June
Venue: First Base
St Stephen’s Hall
Light refreshments will be provided.
