242 guests had their eyes tested as a result of the hard work and efforts of the Crisis Christmas Opticians team 2010. In many cases, it can be the only opportunity to have a sight test and a pair of glasses.
A total of 247 glasses were required, 65 of those were issued immediately after the test with the balance being glazed by Essilor and dispensed on the 17th January at our Skylight clinic.
All of this was only possible due to donations of the following:
• Lenses and glazing paid for by Essilor UK Ltd
• Frames from Fabris Lane and SightCare
• Ready-made reading spectacles from Polaroid Eyewear
• Domiciliary equipment from The Outside clinic
The E-Christmas card campaign has successfully generating donations of over £900, including corporate donations from Optisoft (£500), Nikon (£200), FODO (£100) and The Outside Clinic (£100) as well as individual donations. This will fund the running of our two London clinics for a month.
Finally, a huge thank you goes out to all those involved, for their hard work and ultimately making a difference.
