Kate Farrow would like to inform all the kind people who have responded to her appeals for used spectacles that no more are needed for the time being.
The demand has dropped off and one hopes that the reason for this is that the people of the Eastern Cape Province (formerly Transkei) are now more affluent and like to buy new spectacles.
Those already collected went out to ‘Vision Care in Umtata with Jenny McConnachie on March 15th.
Spectacles can be taken to the opticians department at Boots the Chemist who pass them on to ‘Sight Savers, a charity which sends them to Third World Countries. Thank you for your wonderful response in the past.
