DON’T LEAVE YOUR CHILD’S SIGHT TO CHANCE Blackpool optician is urging parents not to leave their child’s sight to chance, encouraging them to take advantage of the FREE eyecare they are entitled to.

Regular eye examinations are recommended for everyone, but for young eyes with rapidly developing eyes, it is even more essential. A study by the College of Optometrists tested 1,000 school children concluding that 24% of the children had significant levels of astigmatism and displayed significantly reduced vision compared to their peers.

Lisa Barrett from Red Bank Opticians Kodak Lens Vision Centre in Bispham says too many parents are leaving their child’s eyecare in the hands of their schools, which are not always obligated to provide regular sight tests.

Depending on the age of the child, the eye examination may be the same as that of an adult, however it is altered to suit the child’s capability. Should your child require glasses they will receive an NHS voucher to cover all or part of the cost depending on the frame and lenses chosen. In most cases no additional costs are incurred by the parents.

“School eyetests have become a postcode lottery, and too many parents assume that their children’s sight is being monitored at school, when it isn’t. Children’s sight tests are free, and can detect problems before their education is affected, so are abolutely vital,” said Lisa.

Book your child’s FREE sight test today by visiting Red Bank Opticians at 113 Redbank Road, Bispham or call 01253 350048. www.kodaklens.co.uk

A recent study by Which? discovered that despite a recommendation for a national screening programme, one in 10 primary care trusts (PCTs) fails to arrange any vision testing for four to five year olds.

Introducing… The Peel2Save fundraising card is one of the most efficient and effective ways for charities, schools, clubs, youth groups and other non-profit organisations to raise much needed money.

The Ultimate .Super Simple High Profit Fundraiser! The Peel2Save fundraising card is a brilliant way for charities to raise much needed money. Peel2Save cards are credit-card sized – so they fit neatly into a purse or wallet. They contain 64 individual peel off coupons each one promoting a great local business. In total the offers are typically worth well over £300 – and all the offers are local to you.

You sell the cards for £10 each and get to keep £5 from every card sold. Because the cards offer such great value – and all the businesses featured are local to you (each card is built and pulled together by our local co-ordinator in your area) many organisations are selling hundreds of cards in only 2-3 weeks – which means very significant funds are raised very quickly.

The consumer wins, you win and local businesses benefit too. It’s a total community effort where everybody gains. If you would like to find out more about whether Peel2Save could work for your organisation simply give us a call... “It’s not like making a donation because I’m getting such great value from the card” Lindy Elledge

Blackpool Windows and Solar Energy (BWSE) Is a family run business that has been supplying and fitting quality doors, windows and conservatories across the Fylde Coast and Lancashire for many years. The company has recently expanded into green energy conservation by including PV panels in its portfolio of products. David Williams, the proprietor of BWSE said ‘PV panels are fitted onto the roof of domestic and commercial properties and convert the suns energy into electrical energy which is the current that we use in our houses By generating this energy you can help power your own home and also receive a guaranteed feed in tariff from the

28

Government for the next 25 years and the tariff is index linked so will keep pace with inflation. It’s a fantastic way to beat the inevitable electricity bill rises and to also receive an income from the Government. We can take you through the initial design to the final installation and will ensure all your questions are answered so that you are fully aware of the system and requirements. We also complete all the paperwork to obtain the feed in tariff so that the whole process is easy and painfree’. Companies have to adhere to a strict accreditation process which provides reassurance to the customer that the work and system is being fitted to the correct standards. PV panels have already taken off in other parts of the country and demand has increased with the recent

announcements of price rises by the energy companies. Some forecasters predict the increase could be as high as 19% so it makes sense to be get ready now and not have to worry this winter. BWSE also continue to provide doors, windows and conservatories as well as PV panels so if you would like more information about any of these product please call us on 01253 821904. There are no flashy salesman and no hard sell methods, we want our customers to be 100% happy with the quality, workmanship and price from Blackpool Windows Solar and Energy and most of our work comes from returning customers and recommends. Start making money today and install PV panels onto your roof, you’ll be glad you did.
