Crawley eye-care charity celebrates 30th anniversary


A Crawley-based charity that helps make eye-care accessible in developing countries has celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Vision Aid Overseas’s warehouse and UK headquarters is in Newton Road in the Manor Royal business district.

The charity celebrated the launch of its milestone year in London.

A spokesman said it moved from Leatherhead to the town in 1999 to be closer to Gatwick Airport.

The warehouse sorts, recycles and sells donated glasses to raise funds.
