VCHP celebrates 20th anniversary

Elaine Styles tells Andrew McCarthy-McClean about the charity’s party and expansion plans

Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP) celebrated its 20th anniversary this year and announced ambitious plans to open as many as 20 clinics in the UK over the next five years. 

The charity sought volunteers with management experience in running optical businesses who could spare a few hours each week.  

VCHP’s plans were announced ahead of its 20th anniversary, which will be marked on September 29 with a party for those who dedicated their time to the charity.  

Elaine Styles, co-founder of VCHP, told Optician: ‘We have secured some space for a small party in the City of London, not far from our very first clinic at Crisis at Christmas. We have invited all of our volunteers and supporters from the optical community to come and join us and to celebrate the work we have done and continue to do.’
