Calling all budding young artists!
We need your help to design a poster. The idea is to highlight the importance of good eyesight for kids and make sure their eyes are "cool for school".
We're looking for something bright and colourful on a sheet of A4 paper in landscape mode with a short message at the top. Draw or paint whatever comes into your mind when you think about about eyes or vision. It could be a picture of yourself with glasses on, a drawing of your own eyes or a friend’s, or even a picture of someone having an eye test.
Make your message short and snappy - maybe something like, “Book a Back to School Eye Test” or "Are your eyes Cool for School?" Or you could complete a sentence starting with “I love my eyes because….”
The winning design will feature in Bloom magazine. It will also be displayed as a poster in our practice and on our website and facebook page. And there’s more - a great prize for the winner - a £50 Amazon voucher to spend on books, games or other goodies!
The competition is open to children between 4 – 14 years old. Entries can be handed or posted in to Eric’s practice.
The closing date is Friday 24th August. So, get busy this summer and let your imagination run wild. We can’t wait to see your ideas!
Poppy is the delightful and adorable pup we're sponsoring to train as a guide dog. She’s now 6 months old and settling in very nicely to her new home with dedicated trainers, Mary and Keith.
She’s doing really well at obedience training and has been out on various trips outside - to the shops, indoor bowls and even the hairdressers! These are all really important experiences to help Poppy get accustomed to the many different environments her owner may take her to in the future.
