The store stocked waving Specsavers Red Nose Day glasses in small and large sizes. The glasses cost only £2 with the whole £2 from each pair going directly to Comic Relief to spend on life-changing projects both at home in the UK and across Africa.

The staff raised the £940 through glasses sales and Red Nose Day bake sale.

A word from the director

Diana Kelly, store director of Specsavers Musselburgh, said: ‘We’d like to thank all our customers for their support – we have been overwhelmed by their generosity.

‘All our staff have had lots of fun with the glasses this Red Nose Day and everyone’s so pleased that we were able to contribute a great amount to Specsavers’ total.’

Specsavers Musselburgh joined Specsavers stores nationwide to support Red Nose Day to help poor and vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.
