Specsavers, official eyewear and eye care partner to Cricket Australia, is asking Bunbury locals to nominate a Community Cricket Champion. 

Bunbury locals are being asked to nominate a Community Cricket Champion by visiting communitychampions.com.au and explaining why their local cricket club member/volunteer deserves to be recognised.  

Specsavers will reward one deserving Community Cricket Champion and their team with a training experience with Ian Healy and members of the Australian cricket team who will visit their local club for a skills session.  

To be eligible, nominate your Community Cricket Champion before January 27 for a chance to take part in the session.

The club will also receive complimentary eye tests at their local Specsavers store and glasses for those who require them.  

Specsavers cricket ambassador Ian Healy said he was excited to see the people being recognised through the search for a local Community Cricket Champion.  

“Each and every player on the Australian cricket team started out playing community cricket, and it’s at the thousands of local cricket clubs around Australia where that love of the game began,” he said. 

“We’ll keep our eyes peeled for the best in community cricket and I’m looking forward to acknowledging our well deserving local Community Cricket Champions. 

“It’s great to be working with Specsavers and Cricket Australia to celebrate the best in community cricket and to give volunteers the credit and recognition they deserve – after all, it’s what makes the game all it is today.”

Specsavers Bunbury Retail Partner Carys Walker encouraged community members to put forward a deserving cricket champion. 

“Being trained by a professional player who knows the game inside and out is a unique opportunity that the chosen team will be sure to benefit from,” she said.
