Lions have long held sight to be a special sense since Helen Keller addressed a Lions conference in 1927 and asked Lions to become Knights of the Blind. Since then we have regularly supported programmes aimed at improving sight care, especially in third world countries, and at Hinckley & Burbage Lions we send used spectacles and lenses for recycling via Chichester Lions.


Our spectacles collection point is Burton Wright Opticians, Station Road, Hinckley who are happy to receive your unwanted glasses, glasses cases and lenses which we regularly collect for forwarding on​ to Chichester Lions.

Please see if you can manage to pass on your old specs to our bin at Burton Wright and you will be helping someone desperately in need of the sense of sight. Thank you.
