Laura Bennett

Laura is a volunteer and trustee for Vision Aid Overseas and will be joining a team on an assignment to central Zambia in August 2019. This will consist of three qualified optometrists and two optometry students. The aim is to carry out eye examinations in rural locations and provide spectacles from the nearest VAO vision centre as well as mentoring the students and in-country healthworkers. One of the locations will include Chitambo District which is also supported by a Scottish charity located in Penicuik for which Chris is a trustee.
Laura and Chris have completed several assignments for VAO over the past decade and met during a VAO fundraising dragonboat race in 2012.
As a consequence,they are marrying in 2019 and would like to fundraise jointly for the charity that brought them together.
