Dumfries curlers get n-ice boost from local opticians
Specsavers in Dumfries supported a ladies’ curling tournament for the 10th year running.
The store, which is located in the Loreburne Shopping Centre, sponsored the Dumfries Ice Bowl Curling Association’s Ladies’ Fun League 2016/17.
The ladies play throughout the season and play a separate, fun tournament on the day of the final prize giving.
A word from our store director
Specsavers Dumfries store director Jill Dickson said: ‘We’re very proud to support the Ladies’ Fun League – it’s a big part of Dumfries and Galloway’s curling heritage and really encourages people to get involved in the sport.
‘It’s so important for us to support sporting initiatives in the town and we hope that our support will encourage people to get involved – and will remind them to book in for regular eye health check-ups.’
Marion Mather, President of DIBCA, said: ‘We would like to say a huge thank you to Specsavers Dumfries for its ongoing support. It really does mean a lot to everyone involved in the tournament.
‘Curling involves a lot of concentration and precision and you need to have good eyesight to play. Players have to be able to judge distance very well and to keep their eyes focused on the stone and the target at all times.
‘Thanks to Specsavers’ sponsorship, more people in the association are now aware that regular eye health check-ups are vital
