Walters Opticians are proud of their traditional values and Independent status.
Roy Walters strongly believes that for any business to become a true part of any
community, it must actively support the community.
"There many ways in which a business can be active in supporting the local
community, we have annually offered sponsorship and financial support for numerous
local sports teams.
Over the past 10 years we have supported Marshals junior football teams, the Marshals
cricket team, Sam Crooke's Racing as well as supporting local fund raising events
Walters Opticians has through activities and financial aide, helped the re-establishment
of the Sturton by Stow Bonfire and Firework night, and the Sturton by Stow summer
marquee party – both events now are established and annually raise in excess of
£3000 pounds towards improving facilities for their community.
The Staff of the company play a major role in fund raising for the community. Annually
organising a raffle (open only to staff and partners). They spend many hours persuading
suppliers to provide the prizes for the raffle.
Over the last 10 years the money raised by their efforts has been used to support
various local worthy and deserving causes and bodies, such as Sure Start, GAPA (Gainsborough
adventure playground association) and William Harrison School.
We are proud of our relationships with these causes, and of our place in the community
and will continue to offer our support and will continue to increase our efforts
in the future.
