Preston Specsavers team and customers were game for a laugh as the store raised £907 for Red Nose Day.

Following in the footsteps of Gok Wan, staff and visitors made their faces funny for money with Specsavers’ official Red Nose Day glasses.

A big hit with shoppers

Christopher Shore, store director of Specsavers Preston, said: ‘We certainly raised more than a few colourful smiles and our ‘answer a silly question’ competition was a big hit in the St George's Shopping Centre on Friday.

With the help of Flash Photobooths, we were thrilled to welcome shoppers to jump into our special Specsavers funny photo booth to pull their silliest faces with a fantastic array of wacky props and costumes.'

Game for a laugh

‘As a team we thoroughly enjoyed making our faces funny for money in support of the great work that Comic Relief does and it was fantastic to see so many customers join in the fun!

Specsavers in Preston joined Specsavers stores nationwide to support Comic Relief to help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.

A life-changing cause

From painting their faces to donning the Specsavers funny specs millions of people up and down the country made their faces funny for money, raising life changing sums of money. The money raised through Red Nose Day helps poor and vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.
