Staff from Specsavers in Boston have been collecting unwanted old glasses to help children in Ghana.

The store has urged customers to dig out their no-longer-needed specs and sunglasses to send over to impoverished youngsters.

The Boston team’s regional colleagues will take the donations out in August as part of work with Ashanti Development.
