Your goggles for a great cause
Tuesday 5th May 2020
Many of us are doing what we can to help out elderly and vulnerable neighbours and looking to see if there is more that we can do. Now here is a great initiative that is really pertinent to those of us who love to ski or board and it is so simple – donate your old goggles! Donate your old goggles to help a great cause Goggles for Docs to help fight against coronavirus in hospitals and care homes.
Hopefully, you are all keeping your spirits up and dreaming of new adventures to come! This is a strange time and we find ourselves worried and unmotivated even though we probably have more time on our hands than usual.
Donate your old goggles
Are you having a clear-out? Come across some outdated or replaced goggles? What about those old ski goggles you used on a snowsports holiday a couple of seasons back? Donate those old goggles.
These goggles can help dedicated Health and Social Care Workers: Goggles For Docs
Goggles For Docs is a volunteer-run initiative which was set up during this national crisis to offer help to those on the frontline. Whilst the hope remains that our healthcare professionals will receive the adequate PPE they require, this operation could bridge that gap in the meantime by aiding with missing eye protection. Over 35,800 goggles have been donated worldwide so far and counting. The UK branch has just opened but already the donations are mounting.
Whether you were not able to trial your new pair of ski goggles this winter or you have some old ones lying around in the attic, if you can, dust them off and donate them.
The quickest and most efficient way to donate them is to post them to:
FAO: Martin Rigley,
Lindhurst Engineering Ltd.
Sutton in Ashfield
Please spread the word and raise awareness to like-minded skiers or anyone else for that matter.
Any type of goggles is better than nothing. If you aren’t able to help with this cause, rest assured there are plenty of other ways in which you can or donate other alternative items that are required. All types of goggles can help with vital eye protection. Motocross goggles, mountain bike goggles…something is better than nothing!
