Specsavers in Yate has agreed to a two-year sponsorship of Coalpit Heath Cricket Club Youth section.
The store has teamed up with Specsavers in Bradley Stoke to sponsor the U11, U13 and U15 teams, providing them with branded playing shirts. The second year of the sponsorship will also see the stores provide the teams with new equipment.
‘We are very grateful to Specsavers Yate and Specsavers Bradley Stoke for their support,’ said Steve Gwinnell, chairman of Coalpit Heath Cricket Club. ‘The shirts look great and as we’ve been so lucky with the weather recently, there’s been lots of opportunities for the teams to wear them.’
‘Supporting our local community is something we’re really passionate about at the store,’ said Specsavers Yate store director, Jane Morgan. ‘We’re delighted to be involved with Coalpit Heath Cricket Club and wish the Youth teams every success for the rest of the season.’
