The Specsavers team at Matlock and Chesterfield donned their fanciest red oven gloves for a week of fundraising in support of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day 2019.

Bringing in the dough 

Truly getting into the Red Nose Day spirit, we dressed pyjamas for a day and held a bake sale in a bid to raise money for good causes.

The amount raised on the day itself went into the store’s Comic Relief pot, which already had hundreds of pounds donated throughout the month from the sale of Red Nose Day glasses. In total, customers and staff raised a huge £1,000 throughout the month

A word from the ophthalmic optician

Allissa Charlesworth, ophthalmic optician at Specsavers Matlock and Chesterfield, comments: ‘Specsavers has long been a champion of Comic Relief, and it’s certainly a very significant part of the year when it comes to our fundraising efforts across both stores. The staff can’t wait for it to come round every year

‘It was great to see just how creative the staff’s costume efforts were and they must have been a hit with customers given how generous they were with donations!’
