Store announces sponsorship of Walk the Test Way 2017

Specsavers in Romsey is delighted to announce its sponsorship of ‘Walk the Test Way, 2017’, a charity fundraiser that is the brainchild of The Rotary Club of Romsey Test.

Gearing up for October’s event

The event will take place on 8th October 2017 and comprises five walks in distances of 5, 8, 11, 16 and 25.5 miles. Last year, an amazing £66,000 was raised for 134 charities! Expectations are high for 2017 but everyone involved hopes to exceed on last year’s performance.

A word from the store director

Specsavers Romsey store director Eve Robertson says: ‘Over the last 13 years, our customers and employees have taken part in this fantastic event, so it is an honour for us to come on-board in its 14th year as a sponsor.

‘The good health and wellbeing of our Romsey customers is at the core of what we do which echoes that of Walk the Test Way. This feels like a very natural fit for us as a local business to express this very important message.’

How can locals get involved?

Specsavers hopes to encourage its customers to join them on one of the walks to help impact the donation pot. To find out more, visit or pop into store to learn how to take part.
