We believe that businesses should be part of the communities they serve.

That’s why we’re happy to be involved in supporting others in as many ways as we can.

In 2022 we marked our 60th year as a family business by working with a charity partner which is a part of our community and supports the people of this town and the surrounding area.

Home-Start Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre help families through their toughest times and they’re all about compassionate, confidential help and expert support.

And we’re so impressed with their work that this year we’ve decided to support them again.

Instead of charging for the small repairs service we offer, we’ll encourage those who want to, to make a donation to the charity. There’s a collection box in the practice for this – and for anyone else who wants to help. We’ll offer referred Home-Start families a free upgrade to an enhanced eye test when they visit us for their regular NHS check. Or if that’s not applicable, a free OCT scan.

We’ll also be passing on some of our experience to help any family with eyesight concerns to be signposted to someone who can help.

Last year, our Director Sukie did a sponsored walk up the 235ft of the Big One to help raise more money for the charity. She enjoyed it but we’re not sure there’ll be a repeat!

We’re committee members of Highfield Business Group which is working hard to ensure the area remains a bustling, busy and caring part of Blackpool. Pre-Covid our annual Christmas ‘Mingle & Jingle’ was a highlight on the calendar. As well as being a great way to bring Father and Mother Christmas to South Shore it also raised more than £2,000 for Heartbeat NWCC .

Previously our optometrist Stephen has joined sleep outs on the streets of Blackpool to raise awareness and much needed funds for the fantastic work of charity Streetlife. We’ve also raised money for head injury charity Headway and our patients helped us with a donation of goods to Blackpool’s Amazing Graze community cafe.

This year we’ve also joined the North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, which represents around 1,600 businesses in the county. Looking forward to making some new connections and being involved.

And we’re always looking to link with other businesses offering great services, like our friends at Always Ear, who provide professional and friendly private audiology services to Fylde Coast residents.

Regular examinations are an essential part of maintaining good eye health.
