Optix software and its growing group of users have made a significant donation to Vision Care for Homeless People.
Trevor Rowley, Managing Director of Optix, presented a cheque for £6,444 to Elaine Styles, Chair of Vision Care for Homeless People, last week. The money was raised from delegate donations made at the recent Optix conference and by a matched contribution from the UK optical software company.
Trevor explained that it was a natural “next step” for the company –
“We have worked with Vision Care for Homeless People for four years, supporting the clinics with software. We thought it would be good to introduce a charity appeal at our annual user conference and this was the obvious charity for us to support.”
The funds are allocated to support the ongoing work of the charity which provides eye examinations and glasses for the dispossessed at its centres in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Brighton – anyone interested in volunteering can click here.
