Specsavers supports local cricket club

Specsavers in Didcot is continuing its sponsorship of Didcot Cricket Club – supporting subsidised cricket, new equipment and training opportunities for players in the area.

Didcot Cricket Club is an amateur club in South Oxfordshire fielding four senior league teams, a T20 midweek side and five youth teams from Under 9s through to Under 17s and the ECB All Stars Programme.

It is committed to offering the highest possible level of competitive cricket, alongside providing inclusive, affordable cricket for everyone in the Didcot area at Boundary Park, a new state of the art multi-sport facility. The club has more than 100 junior members across the different age groups, catering for boys and girls with teams playing in most of the Oxfordshire junior competitions.

‘In order to provide the local community with this outstanding resource, the club is very much dependent upon the support and generosity of community focused sponsorship from local businesses,’ comments Jordan Morrison, Chairman Didcot Cricket Club. ‘So, we are delighted that Specsavers Didcot stood by the club and renewed its sponsorship for the current year, helping to keep cricket affordable to our local youngsters.’

Adela Garcia, store director at Specsavers Didcot, adds: ‘It’s great to continue our partnership with Didcot Cricket Club – not only does it boast great facilities and training – but a welcoming  inclusive community that is treasured by so many.’

In line with NHS recommendations, Specsavers colleagues use personal protective equipment (PPE) throughout the stores, wear face masks and other PPE during tests, and all testing equipment and frames are thoroughly sanitised before and after each use.  Appointments need to be made in advance and there are also restrictions on the number of customers allowed in store at any one-time, strict social distancing rules and, where possible, card instead of cash payments.
