Red Nose Day
This Red Nose Day (Friday 24 March), supporters in Richmond can accessorise their red nose with comedy waving hand glasses.
Priced at just £2 and in Specsavers stores now, all money raised from sales of the specs will be donated to Comic Relief. The glasses come in adult and children’s sizes.
A word from the store director
Ross Campbell, store director at Specsavers in Richmond, said: ‘The glasses are fantastic and we’ll be encouraging everyone who buys a pair to also join our giant Mexican wave on social media as well. Simply strike a pose with your glasses and post with the #GiveUsAWave to receive your very own wave back.’
The Yorkshire eyecare experts are also running a prize draw in the run up to Red Nose Day. A red-themed hamper will be up for grabs in store, with tickets costing £1 or £3 per strip.
Ross adds: 'We’re really going all out to raise as much case for this important cause as possible. On Red Nose Day itself, we’ll all be wearing red to show our support too.'
More about the appeal
Specsavers in Richmond has 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 and pledged to raise at least £250,000 for the charity.
Specsavers has been a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
