A Dalkeith optician is urging locals to help improve the eye health of Zambians by donating their old or unwanted glasses.

Specsavers is collecting unused frames at its Jarnac Court store.

Customers can get involved in the appeal by dropping their old frames into an in-store collection bin, which will then be donated to Vision Aid Overseas.

The glasses are recycled and the money raised is used to fund the charity’s work in developing countries.
