The Stirling Highland Games take place every year and Specsavers have long been supporters of the local event.

The Specsavers store on Murray Place has sponsored the games since 2014 and have committed to sponsoring the event until 2025.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, the games took place virtually this year to ensure no one missed out on the annual festivities.

Specsavers proudly sponsored the inaugural Bruce Challenge competition which saw Chris Beetham take home the trophy.

A word from the store director

Specsavers Stirling store director, Susanne Akil, says: ‘Supporting the Highland Games is very important for us as it is a huge event for the city.

‘Although we are disappointed that we could not be there in person this year, we logged in and made sure we didn’t miss a thing.

‘Well done to Chris for winning the very first Bruce Challenge – we are already looking forward to attending next year’s event which has our full support.’

Next year’s event will mark 150 years of the Stirling Highland Games and will take place on 21 August 2021.
