Ludlow Specsavers is celebrating after being presented with the Excellence in the Community Award at the 2016 Specsavers Awards for Excellence.

Staff at Ludlow Specsavers, 33 Bull Ring, were honoured with the prestigious award for their ongoing commitment to the local community.

A word from the store director 

Store director, Nicole Aubrey, was delighted with the award: ‘This is such an unbelievable accolade! This year we really focused on fundraising in the local community and pledged to raise £5,000 for Brain Tumour Research and Hope House Hospice.

Judge's comments 

Awards judge and director of PR at Specsavers, Jo Delbridge said: ‘We rated stores on their level of community engagement, the charitable support they gave, the media coverage they secured throughout the year, what other in-store support services they offered customers and the quality of their actual entry.’

Award nomination and community support

Nicola added: ‘Our awards entry was a magical land which showcased our journey of community events over the past two years and was a collaborative effort by the team. We are thrilled that the judges recognised us in the awards and are so pleased with the outcome.'

‘We want to say a big thank you to Ludlow residents, because without their support we wouldn’t be up for such an award. We are looking forward to contributing even more to the community - Ludlow is a small town, but it’s our town and we love it!’
