Following the recent tragic deaths of two children in Staffordshire caused by window blind loop cords, a Shrewsbury business, Bob The Blindman, has decided to commit over £3,000 to a national child safety campaign that makes customers aware of the possible dangers of window blind cords through advertising and their website


Bob Walker, MD of Bob The Blindman, said, "We have always advised our customers of the possible dangers of window blind cords and have for a number of years offered a child safe option on all blinds we fit. When I heard of the tragic deaths reported in the news I made a commitment to provide every one of our new and existing customers the opportunity to have a cord safe device fitted to all of their blinds absolutely FREE.


"Bob The Blindman will also provide anyone in the UK with the same device, which is simple to fit, at the very nominal price of 50p... and half of that will be donated to the NSPCC.


“The company is committed to ensuring that all blinds in the UK can be made safer. We have always fitted cord cleats etc. when requested and have consistently advised customers on control cord placement and length," continued Bob. "But now our company will insist that every blind we fit must have a cord safety device fitted."
