On Saturday 9th December, from 10am to 1pm the team at Specsavers Banbridge are hosting a special festive inspired birthday event to mark the store’s first year.

Patients, visitors, Christmas shoppers and other traders in the town centre are invited to call into the store on the Saturday to enjoy tea, coffee and mince pies, special giveaways and children’s entertainment.

Customers can also enter a free raffle to win a pair of designer glasses, including single vision unltraclear superclean lenses (to be used in the Banbridge store – terms and conditions apply).

A thank-you to everyone

Optometrist and store director Wayne Watson said: ‘It’s been a privilege to open a Specsavers store in Banbridge and we’d like to celebrate our first year with a party to thank all our patients and the local community.’

Helping the local community

‘This year we’ve made Craigavon and Daisy Hill neonatal and special care baby units our charity drive. After Christmas we’ll present cash generated through a range of in store and other fund-raising events to both hospitals.

‘We’ve also supported the local Ladies Bowling Club and a young female footballer as well as worked alongside RNIB as part of their high-profile fund-raising fashion show.’
