First published in News

SPECTACLE wearers from Ilminster have been collecting used spectacles and sending them to Third World countries.

Town residents collected more than 2,000 pairs of glasses in June – the best collection so far.

Many organisations in the town and beyond have participated in the campaign, with glasses being sent on to Chichester Lions Club for sorting and sending to Ghana, Papua New Guinea, Nepal and Nigeria.
