As an official sponsor of the Guinness PRO12 match officials and referees, Specsavers is also the official optician and hearing services partner of the Guinness PRO12, providing expert eye care for players and officials, ensuring no ‘should’ve gone to Specsavers’ moments on the pitch. The partnership also highlights the importance of eye and hearing care in sport, especially playing a contact sport like rugby.
Store director Lynsey Caldwell, Specsavers Connswater says: ‘We were delighted to be able to bring the trophy to schools, stores and rugby clubs throughout Northern Ireland to enjoy some of the buzz created by both the PRO12 and the Rugby World Cup.’
Healthy eyesight helps sporting success
Lynsey continued: ‘The trophy tour has also given us a chance to get out and meet schools, clubs and specialist facilities in our local community, reminding them of how important eye and hear care is when playing sports, and that we’re here to ensure they can be future stars on the pitch with a healthy eyesight!’
