Welcome to the Bedspring Competition


How do you win the Highland BlindCraft Bed Divan set?

Easy – guess how long the bedsprings in a typical Highland BlindCraft Mattress would be if they were stretched out in a straight line?

It’s that simple. Guess the correct length in miles and the prize is yours.

A clue to guessing correctly and winning the prize – we will need the answers to be as accurate as possible, so when you are guessing, remember to put in the decimal point. For example, if you guess the length to be 3.450 miles, that is how you should enter it (and that is not the answer by the way) …

If no one gets it absolutely right, the nearest guess to the actual length of the wire will be the winner.

Another clue to helping you win the prize – there are 3000 springs in a mattress – wow, that’s a lot of springs…

To enter the competition, we would like a donation from you to raise funds for a very special sight system PC computer. This is a fantastic machine that allows people with eyesight and vision issues to use a computer with relative ease. It will do the following: boost magnification, announce punctuation, replace difficult colours, increase verbosity, hear webpages and turn on braille – and that’s just some of the special features.

For many people with vision issues, this type of machine is invaluable. We will use the machine in a training capacity when we can all get back together. Thanks for your support on this initiative. By entering our competition, you will be helping to change the lives of people with eyesight and vision issues in a huge way.
