The best possible eye care
James Coleman, store director at Specsavers in Sleaford, said: ‘We’re absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for the Specsavers Excellence in the Community Award.
‘Since opening eight years ago, our ambition and philosophy has always been to provide the people of Sleaford with the best possible eye care at all times. The team is passionate about local people and we want the store to be recognised as an independently-owned business that serves its community.
‘As part of this, we like to support as many local projects and groups as possible. Over the last two years we have been busy running children’s fun day clinics to make eye care fun for local youngsters, supporting the fantastic awareness work that 11-year-old Keira Beeson does for Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis, taking part in the community’s window competition to support Blind Veterans UK, as well as our continued partnership with the Sleaford Striders running club.
‘Our nomination means a great amount to me and the rest of the team. We look forward to sharing this good news with our customers.’
