Optical wholesaler Bondeye has donated a box of repair supplies to charity Vision Care for Homeless People.

The delivery included temple tips, screw drivers, nose pads, pliers and lens cleaning products. Bondeye sales manager Dave Walker (right) is pictured with charity chair Elaine Styles, who said: 'When the box of repair supplies was opened the volunteer dispensing optician said she felt as if she had woken up on Christmas Day.

She said it was much better than the equipment she works with in private practice.' Vision Care for Homeless People has also appealed for optical professionals to donate a few hours of their time in the approach to winter.
