Spectacles Recycling

Lions Clubs throughout the UK collect unwanted and damaged spectacles.
These are then sent to Lions Club UK Headquarters which process hundreds of thousands of recycled spectacles each year. All donations are examined by a team of Lions and other volunteers in the recycling workshop.
Sorted pairs of glasses may then be sent for grading and distribution by Medico, France in Le Havre.

Glasses are also sent directly to contacts running eye clinics in Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Nigeria, and Nepal. In addition, volunteers from the 'Unite for Sight' charity are supplied with spectacles to take with them on missions to countries across the world.

Lions National Headquarters in Birmingham also sends spectacles to the National Police Aid Charity to be sent to the Gambia for eye camps, the Army working in Mali, and through a variety of independent charities operating in Nigeria, Chad, Tanzania, and Bangladesh.

Hearing Aid Recycling

Lions Clubs collect unwanted, or broken, analogue and digital hearing aids and audiological equipment from individuals, audiologists, hearing retail outlets, and hospitals.
Since May 2015, Lions have collected almost 90,000 hearing aids and ancillary items.
