Jubilee crown hunt at independent practice
Author: Andrew McClean
Eye Care Matters in Birstall participated in a Jubilee crown hunt for children by displaying a crown in their window that was crocheted by senior receptionist, Caroline Kitchingman.
The independent optical practice in West Yorkshire took part in Jubilee celebrations organised by Birstall Primary Academy and the Birstall Chamber of Trade.
Dr Sarah Slade, optometrist and owner of Eye Care Matters, said: ‘Over half term the local children followed the trail collecting letters placed by the crowns in the windows of local businesses. Alongside our crown, we have pictures of the queen in her glasses and information about her spectacle wearing habits.’
Alongside the crown window display, Eye Care Matters showcased its range of spectacles and availability of NHS sight tests to promote eye health and eyewear for children.
The Queen is a patient at Roger Pope & Partners in Marylebone, London and has previously worn Silhouette branded frames. The independent optical practice was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen in 2006 and HRH Prince of Wales in 2014. In 2018, the Queen underwent successful surgery to remove a cataract.
