Topcon kits out new charity practice
Topcon says it is taking Corporate Social Responsibility seriously with a major commitment to the UK charity – Vision Care for Homeless People.
Donating full consulting room equipment, including a Topcon fundus camera, slip lamp and Volk lenses for the charity’s new London centre in Shepherd’s Bush, Andrew Yorke, Medical Director, Topcon GB Ltd, explained, “People are in need in this country and, do excuse the pun, we can’t turn a blind eye. When we were asked to help we were happy to do so, especially as it is here, close to home.”
Elaine Styles, VCHP Chair, praised the generosity of Topcon and the great boost in getting the new centre up and running. She said, “Topcon has donated everything above and beyond what we wanted – this is tremendous support for the many homeless people of west London.”
