Working with local schools to promote children’s eye care, Molsom Optometrists organised a Design an Easter Bunny competition for children up to Year 3.

The winners of each category received a large chocolate Easter egg and a pair of Polaroid sunglasses kindly donated by Thorntons Chocolates at Hills Department Store, Spalding.

Runners up in each category also received a chocolate Easter egg.

Andy Molsom of Molsom and Associates Optometrists, Spalding, said: “The competition has been a fantastic success with over 150 entries.

“Designing an Easter Bunny requires good visual skills and coordination which helps vision development in the early years.”

Through this initiative and the School Visit programme the practice runs in the Spalding area, Molsom and Associates Optometrists are reaching out to local parents and urging them to arrange regular eye tests for their youngsters which are free on the NHS.

Andy said: “With no formal school vision screening programme locally and increasing visual demands required with computerised technology, it has never been more important to make sure our children can see well and early detection of problems will improve their learning ability.”
