On 31 January, 2011 Petersfield Lions and their colleagues in Midhurst Lions were delighted to present a cheque for £1000 to the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust. The money was raised from old spectacles made of valuable metals which Midhurst had identified in their sort of the hundreds of thousands of pairs collected by Petersfield in succesive Spectreks. The Trust supports nationwide action on the comparatively rare cancer in the eyes of young children. Early diagnosis and action has a very high success rate.
The next Spectrek is 17 April, 2011
