Alnwick Bowling Club’s 2019 season is in full swing thanks to a £500 cash injection from its local opticians.
The donation sees Specsavers in the town instated as a main season sponsor, with the funds facilitating the club’s upcoming competitions this summer.
A special thanks
Allan Lofthouse, Alnwick Bowling Club president, said: ‘It’s wonderful to have sponsorship from Specsavers this year, and it means we will be able to host our ‘open pairs’ competition once again, and with generous prize money to boot.
‘Bowls is often seen as an older person’s sport, but it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. That’s why this season we’re offering a month’s free trial to anyone interested in joining us, as well as also reducing our membership fees for the year. The start of the new season is a great time to get involved if you’re keen to try something new.’
Grant Welsh, store director at Specsavers in Alnwick, said: ‘We enjoyed a fantastic start to the season at Alnwick Bowling Club. Going strong since in 1877, they’re an asset to our town and we were only too pleased to be able to show our support through this sponsorship.’
