Members of a Bradley Stoke bowling club have received a boost at the start of their season thanks to a donation by three local opticians.
Bradley Stoke Bowls Club (BSBC) is set to benefit from the support of Specsavers stores in Bradley Stoke, Filton and Cribbs Causeway. The money will mainly help pay for the continued development of different bowling opportunities for both new and experienced bowlers. The stores are also donating Specsavers umbrellas to help keep spectators dry during tournaments.
“We’re delighted to again be supporting the Bradley Stoke Bowls Club for the season,” says store director, Ed Stanleigh.
“We’ve been supporting the club since it started back in 2010. Thanks to the strong relationship we’ve established and maintained with this club that’s so important to the local community, we’ve been able to continue the sponsorship each year.”
Robert Bertram, chairman of Bradley Stoke Bowls Club, says:
“We’re very grateful to Specsavers for their ongoing support. Their sponsorship will help us with the development of bowls in the Bradley Stoke area and provide additional benefits for players and spectators to relax and enjoy the tournaments and friendly matches.”
The sponsoring Specsavers stores can be found at the Willow Brook Centre (Bradley Stoke), Church View (Filton) and The Mall (Cribbs Causeway).
