Specsavers Bradley Stoke has agreed to a two-year sponsorship of Coalpit Heath Cricket Club Youth section.
Specsavers in The Willow Brook Centre has teamed up with Specsavers in Yate to sponsor the U11, U13 and U15 teams, providing them with branded playing shirts. The second year of the sponsorship will also see the stores provide the teams with new equipment.
‘We are very grateful to Specsavers Bradley Stoke and Specsavers Yate for their support,’ said Steve Gwinnell, chairman of Coalpit Heath Cricket Club. ‘The shirts look great and as we were so lucky with the weather this summer, there’s been lots of opportunities for the teams to wear them.’
‘Supporting our local community is something we’re really passionate about at the store,’ said store director, Ed Stanleigh. ‘We’re delighted to be involved with Coalpit Heath Cricket Club and wish the Youth teams every success for the rest of the season.’
The players spend valuable time with friends enjoying staying active. Age group sides have become an increasing force in the local Bristol Youth Cricket league and some players have even been selected for local representative sides including Gloucestershire County.
