FIFTEEN HUNDRED pairs of prescription spectacles will be sent worldwide to help populations in desperate need of clear vision.
Thanks to Specscavers of Calpe and Javea and also the Lions Club of Calpe and Benissa, the spectacles are on their way to the Melvin Jones Recycling Centre in San Vicente del Raspeig. From here they will be graded and dispatched to Africa, Asia, South America and parts of Europe.
“And don’t forget to visit the Lions Charity Shop which is open from 10am until 1pm, Monday to Saturday, in Calle Pintor Sorolla in Calpe to pick up a bargain,” the Lions’ Carolyn Mills reminded readers.
The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite residents in Spain with family and friends by capping the cost of PCR tests for travel. Please help us to urge the UK government to cap the cost.
