Club bowled over by support
Members of a Bradley Stoke bowling club have received a boost thanks to a donation by their local Specsavers store.
Bradley Stoke Bowls Club is benefitting from £500-worth of sponsorship from 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 mugs and umbrellas to help keep spectators warm and dry during tournaments.
Store director, Ed Stanleigh said: ‘We’re delighted to be supporting the Bradley Stoke Bowls Club for their 2017 season. They’ve been part of Bradley Stoke for seven years now, and we’ve been involved right from the beginning. It’s something that’s important to the local community, so we’re very happy to offer our continued support.
Robert Bertram, chairman of Bradley Stoke Bowls Club, said: ‘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.’
