I Spy...CHECT launches powerful awareness campaign

In November 2010, this striking poster began to appear in children's playhouses around the country. Playhouses are places where children go to play, accompanied by parents and carers, so they are the perfect place to display our poster in order to draw attention to at least one of the signs of Rb.

The poster is of the size you would see in a bus shelter so it really can't be missed! We have also produced other sizes: A3, A4, A5 (double sided handout with more information about Rb) and business cards. They can be displayed and used in many settings around the country. They were also distributed to exhibitors and visitors to the Nursery World exhibition in February 2011.

This I Spy campaign would not be possible without the collective expertise and goodwill of Digital Jigsaw, Boomerang, and OMD. We are very grateful for their help.

Help us to raise awareness of retinoblastoma by distributing the A4 posters, leaflets and cards. Please contact Fiona Heath in the office on 020 7377 5578 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have a project in mind.
