Specsavers Lerwick was the proud sponsor of the recent Carnegie Hall Sportive cycling event which took place on Sunday 12 August 2018.
The fundraising event was a big success with 57 people of all ages and abilities participating and £1,000 raised for the local community space – Carnegie Hall.
Participants had a choice of three cycling routes, a four-mile family route or more challenging 25 and 50-mile routes. Specsavers covered the cost for all finishers to receive a medal and goody bag.
An entrant of the 50-mile route, Colin Smith, also took part in the Specsavers raffle and won a pair of prescription cycling glasses. He recently visited the store on Commercial Street to collect his prize.
Great community event
Thomas Bruin, store director at Specsavers Lerwick, said: ‘The event was fantastic for Sandwick and brought our community together. We were delighted to support the event and supply water bottles, high-vis vests, medals, goody bags and raffle prizes for participants.’
