Specsavers Ilford are now a proud sponsor of Wanstead Central Bowling Club – and some of the team will be putting their own skills to the test next month.
The store, in the High Road, has recently agreed a sponsorship deal on club shirts which will see a stylish Specsavers Ilford logo added to the right sleeve.
Regular hearing tests
They will also be advertising in the match day programme, and are keen to promote the importance of regular hearing tests to club members.
With this in mind, members of the in store team will be attending a sponsors day in June where they will be advising on hearing and eye tests – and taking a few minutes out to play a quick game of bowls themselves.
A word from the store director
Saleem Ismael, store director in Ilford, said: ‘Being able to hear clearly is vital to all sport and leisure activities, and bowls is definitely no different.
‘We recommend that everyone over the age of 55 get a free hearing test with Specsavers Ilford every two years.
'If you do need a hearing aid, we have some great deals available and can also offer advice on how to best manage hearing loss, on and off the green.’
