Making a difference
We are extremely fortunate to have easy access to eyecare in this country. One tenth of the world’s population does not. See how we are trying to help
The gift of sight is arguably our most precious sense and yet millions of people worldwide are effectively blind through a simple lack of spectacles. Coates and Grute enthusiastically support the work of the pioneering eye charity Vision Action in addressing this desperate need.
Working in conjunction with the Lions Club in Chichester, we are able to collect your old spectacles to be recycled to help those in need around the world.
In addition, Graham continues to volunteer his time and expertise to help on overseas projects. He is always happy to provide further information but don’t ask to see his photos, you may be there a while!
