WHAT IS RECYCLE FOR SIGHT?
For more than 35 years, over 3 million spectacles have been collected from Lions Clubs in the south of England including the Windsor Lions Club.
All spectacles collected by Windsor Lions (covering Ascot, Datchet, Eton, Horton, Old Windsor,Sunningdale, Sunninghill and Wraysbury) are sent to the Chichester Lions Club to sort and arrange for their shipment across the channel to Le Havre to the charity Medico France. This charity, which was set up by Lions Clubs in France, then grades the spectacles and prepares them for the last leg of their journey to sight projects across Africa and Asia.
Current collection locations are shown on the map below.
