Ilkley opticians sponsor celebrity book event
The Specsavers stores in Ilkley, Otley, Bradford Darley Street and Girlington are proud to have sponsored Clare Balding at the Ilkley Literature Festival.
Journalist, TV presenter and sports commentator, Clare Balding visited Ilkley as part of a nationwide tour to present her newest biography ‘Walking Home: My Family, and other Rambles’.
The King’s Hall was filled to capacity as fans gathered to hear Claire share her stories, before meeting her and buying signed copies of her brand new book.
A word from the store director
Roger Copely, store director at Ilkley Specsavers said: ‘It was a great privilege for us to be able to sponsor Claire as she brought her book to Ilkley. The book’s about walking and here in Ilkley it’s a walkers’ paradise so it couldn’t have been more appropriate. We wish Clare well with the rest of the tour.’
