Specsavers in Stranraer supported a local bowling club’s flagship tournament earlier this year – and the store has now revealed that it will continue to be the main sponsor of the event.

The team at the George Street store sponsored Stranraer Bowling Club’s Four Bowl Pairs tournament in September. The three-day event was a great success, and the store has now pledged to continue to support the Bowling Green Road club.

A word from our store manager

Specsavers Stranraer store manager Paul Challis said: ‘We’re very proud to have been involved with the bowling club’s fantastic competition this year and we’re looking forward to continuing our sponsorship next season.

‘Bowling is a very intricate sport: it’s all about balance and distance judgement, so it’s vital that the sportsmen and sportswomen taking part look after their eyesight with eye health checks at Specsavers in Stranraer.’

Tournament organiser Susan Kelly said: ‘We would like to say a huge thank you to Specsavers for its support this year and we’re delighted that staff will be supporting the tournament going forward.

‘We’re always very grateful for support received from local businesses. Specsavers is an important part of the community and we’re very pleased to be working with the store.’
