RESIDENTS have shown spectacular support in collecting more than 200 pairs of glasses for people living in poverty.

Customers at Specsavers in Sidcup High Street collected old and unwanted specs for those in the developing world who do not have access to eye care.

They are fitted by charity Vision Aid Overseas (VAO) giving people sometimes very elderly, the means to see for the first time.

The store is still collecting.
