Specsavers on Bradford Darley Street will donate £600 in 2016 to Bradford Central Food Bank and has also pledged financial aid to Horton Park Bowling Club.
Food for those in need
Bradford Central Food Bank, which is run in collaboration with The Light Church and the Trussell Trust, seeks to provide food for people in need. Relying entirely on donations, it is extremely important for the team to receive regular help, so they can continue to offer help to those in need in Bradford.
Pete Rooke, store director at Specsavers Bradford, said: ‘We are always looking to give something back to the community, and ensuring people have access to something as vital as food is a truly important cause.’
Horton Park Bowling Club
A further £350 will be donated from the opticians to Horton Park Bowling Club. The money will be used to supply 14 people with free one-year memberships. With the council beginning to charge for the use of the park, the local club is in danger of closing down.
Pete Rooke commented: ‘Here at Specsavers, we feel that local organisations are very important. We hope that our contribution will help the bowling club to flourish in the community and provide vital leisure facilities for local residents’.
