Specsavers Ilford in the High Road is proud sponsors of Wanstead Central Bowls Club.

So recently they hit the road to have a go at bowling for themselves at a special day for sponsors laid on by the club.

Meeting the members

Several of the in-store team, including retail director Saleem Ismael, popped down to the Nutter Lane club for a game.

And they stuck around afterwards to have a chat to members about the optical and audiology services available in store.

A word from Saleem

Saleem said: ‘We are really pleased to sponsor Wanstead Central Bowls Club, and were delighted to be offered the chance to pop down and have a game in the sunshine.

‘We are definitely better at meeting local eye care and hearing needs than we are at bowling, which is a good thing for our customers. But we still had a lovely time meeting the members, so thank you to the club for inviting us down.’
