January Goggle Works report

We had a busy and productive evening on Friday 12th. Thank you to all who came. We boxed up 643 pairs of glasses, all beautifully bagged by the packing teams. Not all those specs were measured on Friday, as many more were made ready thanks to the stalwart team of Caroline, Jill and Emma, who have been sorting and measuring glasses at home in between the Goggle Works evenings.

In addition, there were boxes of cases, sunglasses, low vision aids (magnifiers etc) and text medical books. We sent 16 boxes altogether, and all these have now safely arrived in Scotland, and are waiting go be loaded onto a container organised by our dentist friends Smileawi.

We also celebrated the arrival of a new autorefractor, which has been kindly donated by Colchester Trinity Rotary. We’ll be saying more about this brilliant gift in due course. Here are Alistair Keeble (Colchester Trinity) and his wife Jackie with the autorefractor.
