Dagenham sports stars cut the ribbon for opticians
Dagenham residents have been treated to a brand new, state of the art optical service with the added bonus of seeing their local sports stars.
Specsavers in Dagenham relocated to a larger unit in the Heathway shopping centre to provide customers with a superior level of optical care as well as a hearing service. The move was celebrated with players from Dagenham & Redbridge Football Club.
Staff marked the opening of their new store with a donation of £500 to the football club’s Community Trust in support of their hard work in the local community. Players showed their appreciation by attending the store’s opening day and cutting the all-important red ribbon to introduce Dagenham’s latest Specsavers optical and hearing service to the community.
Specsavers Dagenham store director, Gurjit Sehmi, says: ‘It was really exciting to have the lads from the football team come down to get behind us and our new store. We are thrilled to be able to support the club’s community trust and do our bit for the local area. It was a lot of fun and the locals really enjoyed it.’
The store will be continuing its work with the local community through fundraising activities into the new year.
