Sporty members of staff from Specsavers in East Kilbride are getting ready to kick off a game of footie in aid of Macmillan.

This year’s Specsavers charity football match will see staff from the Airdrie and Hamilton stores join forces to take on a team from the East Kilbride store on Sunday, 12 June.

Taking to the pitch for charity

The match will take place at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie with players kicking off at 6.30pm.

Store director Shirley-Ann Kennedy said: ‘Macmillan is a charity that carries out fantastic work across the UK and means a great deal to so many people.

‘This is the third year of the charity game and it’s really gathering momentum. Each player has received sponsorship money and customers across the stores have been so generous.

‘We’re very proud to be involved and I’m sure our players will do well.’
