Brownbills team named Lockdown Heroes

Feb 26th 2021

Well we all love to receive an award – and today is no different.

Brownbills are proud to have been recognised as a Lockdown Hero The awards, organised by SightCare, aimed to acknowledge our dedication to our local community eye care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Optical practices across the UK, including Brownbills, submitted their lockdown experiences to the SightCare as part of their ‘SightCare Lockdown Heroes’ award initiative. The exemplary work of entrants included hand-delivering frames to the vulnerable, creating uplifting parody eye related videos, creating lectures on brain and vision therapy, taking on additional training and refitting the practice to make it more COVID-secure and feeding the homeless, to name but a few.

SightCare said “We are exceptionally proud of how independent optical practices have worked to keep the eyesight of their community safe during the pandemic, while also complying to the ever-changing regulations. They have shown not only great dedication to their small independent business, but to their local community, making them worthy Lockdown Heroes.”
