We also collect used hearing aids and deliver them with spectacles to one of the Lions sorting centres in Chichester or Birmingham. Dr Michael Nolan, formerly of the Starkey Hearing Foundation, receives the donations for sorting and refurbishment.
The spectacle recycling story
Every year over 300,000 pairs of spectacles are sent to Medico France. Indeed, donations by UK Lions Clubs, recycled through Chichester, account for more than half of the total number of spectacles processed by Medico France.
