Thanks to a dedicated event hosted by Specsavers in Telford, members of the local university racing team had the privilege of getting their eyes tested and specs dispensed out of hours.

The store in the Telford Shopping Centre was delighted to host an exclusive event for the University of Wolverhampton Racing Team, as part of its sponsorship with the Telford Innovation Campus, where guests were greeted with light refreshments and games.

A word from the store director 

‘We understand that being part of the university racing team means schedules get busy quickly and coming to the opticians might not be considered a top priority,’ said store director, Vinay Najran. ‘However, it’s our mission to ensure that everyone in the local community is looking after their eyes as part of a wider health check so we thought an event was a great opportunity to ensure members of the racing team have a chance to get their eyes tested.

‘It was a great success and we’d like to offer this event to similar organisations, groups and clubs. If you’re interested, then make sure you pop into store and speak to a friendly member of our team.’ 

To thank Specsavers for their sponsorship and continued support, the University of Wolverhampton Racing Team presented staff with a signed rear wing end-plate from the 2016 season.
