On 15 April, twelve people gathered for (probably) the first-ever glasses measuring party on the planet! A few experts were in attendance to train the others and quite soon everyone was measuring and labelling. But it wasn’t all hard work: we watched footage of life in Malawi, and work at the Ekwendeni and Livingstonia eye clinics, fortified by exotic nibbles, with wine and coffee. At the end of the evening, 222 pairs of glasses had been measured and labelled. Thanks to everyone who came and to Caroline and family for hosting. All specs go to Africa through Focus on Malawi.
