And Ray Lindner has introduced us to Naked Specs. This organisation in addition to funding cataract operations in Indonesia also supplies Sun Glasses to people, who through blindness, have eye deformity that is often ridiculed. These sun glasses give them more self esteem and confidence. So we wish to help them by giving them all our redundant sun glasses. Please bring your old sunnies to our next meeting at the RYCV on 22nd October.
PP Ron then gave additional information about next week. Of the $30 admission $2 comes back to the Club.
