Meadow Youth Football Club’s Under 8’s team had a lucky strike after being provided with £1,000 as part of their annual official sponsorship.
The store, who have been backing the club for the last 4 years, presented players with the substantial sum this July.
Store director, Pat Cooper, says: ‘We’re dedicated to celebrating Meadow Youth Football Club and everything they do. We are really excited to be able to provide them with the funding for equipment and tools and in return have a fabulous team to make Chelmsford proud.’
‘We wish the team every success for this season and would encourage everyone in the local community to get behind them and offer their support.’
As part of its annual sponsorship programme, the store offers regular eye examinations to team members, along with education about the importance of looking after their eye health to help them achieve success in sport.
Meadow Youth FC manager, Scott Robinson, says: ‘The Specsavers Chelmsford store has been extremely supportive this year and being associated with an internationally recognised brand has given my players a real sense of pride. Thanks to the store we’ve been able to buy the boys new kit and state-of-the art equipment.’
