16 August 2017 - Our Friends From Chernobyl

Last week the staff at Edmonds & Slatter Opticians in Glenfield gave up their time to run an extra sight test clinic for 13 young children visiting from Chernobyl.

Their visit was arranged by the Friends of Chernobyl’s Children charity (Markfield Branch), as part of a 4 week recuperative visit to the UK which will help build up their immune systems.

At home in Belarus the radioactive contamination from the 1986 nuclear accident still affects the atmosphere resulting in the children being at high risk of contracting cancer or leukaemia. The children are often not expected to survive past 40 but a month of care in the UK boosts their shattered immune systems and can extend their lifespan by up to two years.

Assistant Manager Carol Barker said “All British children enjoy the privilege of a free eye test from the NHS but as these children were visitors we were happy to donate our time and testing skills free of charge”

Everyone had a clean bill of optical health and 3 sets of spectacles were required, but no one left empty handed as goodie bags with assorted toys and sweets were provided for all.

For further information on assisting the children’s charity their website is www.focc-westleics.webs.com or call John Buckby, group co-ordinator on 01455 285799. To have your child’s sight tested at Edmonds & Slatter Opticians in Glenfield please call 0116 287 1025.
