Stepper Eyewear has made a donation of over £7000 to Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP), a charity that provides free eye care and spectacles to the homeless.

The donation, which has been made as the company celebrates its 50th year in 2020, will underwrite the costs of running the charity’s Manchester clinic this year.

Speaking about the donation, managing director of Stepper, Peter Reeve, said: “We have been aware of the charity for many years. We receive a lot of requests for various sponsorships but we have decided to put our charitable giving in one direction, where it can make a real difference for the year ahead.”

VCHP holds a weekly eye care clinic at Manchester’s Cornerstone Day centre every Monday.

Optometrist and chair of VCHP, Elaine Styles, explained that Manchester’s street sleeper problem is “second only to London.”

“This donation of over £7000 will make a tangible differentiate for many people in the north west,” she said.
