Eyeglass Assist - visit to Lions R4S centre in Brisbane
16 November 2017 | Brisbane, Australia
Frances and I visited the Lions Recycling facility in Brisbane yesterday and met with the Chairman of R4S, Ken Leonard OAM. Ken has confirmed that our 10,000 pairs of spectacles will be ready for us whenever we want to take them. I reminded him that we wanted to take sunglasses with us also. He said "how many?" I said "10,000". He said "not a problem!". Now we've just got to work out where we're going to fit them on Monkey Fist.... keeping in mind that our long time friend, experienced sailor and nurse, Caroline Phillips, is keen to accompany us. Won't be an issue we'll have Frances the expert packer on the job.
