Lions are known throughout the world for their work to improve the lives of the visually impaired and prevent avoidable blindness.
Way back in 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become 

“Knights of the Blind, in the crusade against darkness”.

Since then, Lions across the globe have worked tirelessly to eradicate the causes of preventable blindness, such as diabetic retinopathy, as well as supporting surgery to remove cataracts and save sight across the Third World.

Stour Valley Lions support this work with spectacle collections across our area, which are recycled, sorted and dispensed to people in the Third World who could not otherwise afford eyecare.

Imagine what life would be like if you could not see?
