Staff at Specsavers in St Annes are celebrating after being named Best Optician at the Blackpool Evening Gazette's Best of Health Awards.
The award came after director, Edwin Shield, spotted a problem with a ten year old boy's eye and immediately referred him to the hospital. Doctors confirmed a tumour in the brain and were able to treat it straight away.
Dispensing advisor, Steven Mallon said: 'Receiving that recognition makes you feel your work is worthwhile. The team are chuffed with the award. It means a lot.'
