HENLEY Lions Club has inducted two new members, Joan Evans and Chris Varnals.
We look forward to working together and hope they have a long and fulfilling membership.
The annual collection of used spectacles and hearing aids is now beginning in earnest ready for our SPECTREK event day in early April when we take our contribution to a central collection point near Basingstoke.
The specs are then taken to be sorted, refurbished and cleaned and then distributed to new owners in the developing world who would not otherwise have access to these items. A pair of glasses could make the difference, for instance, between the ability of someone being able to work and support their family or not. Such a simple thing.
We have collection points available at the following establishments: Tesco, the Bell Surgery and Nettlebed Surgery and Henley opticians Bunkers, Boots and Frost Borneo.
