Giving Back

As proud members of the vibrant Mill Road community, we know that when we come together we can make a real difference. That’s why we make it a priority to give back and support various eyesight charities throughout the year, be it through regular donations or fundraising events during the annual Mill Road Winter Fair.

Our Charities

  • Sightsavers

    Sightsavers is an international charity that works to eradicate blindness and promote the rights of people with disabilities.

  • Cam Sight

    Cam Sight, a Cambridge-based charity, supports local people of all ages who live with low vision and blindness. Through enhanced independence, improved well-being, and greater inclusion Cam Sight helps people live the life they choose.

  • Vision Aid Overseas

    Vision Aid Overseas has been helping those living in poverty to access affordable glasses and eye care for over 30 years.

Get Involved

  • Recycle your old glasses.

    Bring your old glasses into Taank and we’ll send them to Vision Aid Overseas. While second-hand glasses are no longer donated directly, they’re now recycled for their precious metal content or sold on eBay, the income from which is used to deliver sustainable eyecare services in partner countries.

  • Half price eye exams

    Visit us during the Mill Road Winter Fair, enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks, and bag yourself a half price eye exam. We’ll donate the fee in its entirety to aid the work of our chosen eyecare charity that year.
