This Red Nose Day (Friday 24 March) Wembley, Stanmore and Edgeware Broadwalk joined forces to ‘Gave Us a Wave’ with a ‘Super Saturday Bonanza’ fundraising day.
Raising a magnificent £188.07, the trio joined forces to offer local customers a decadent bake sale, with the store holding a competition looking for the most mouth-watering homemade cake.
Prior to Saturday’s admirable fundraising efforts, the Comic Relief ‘give us a wave’ glasses were on sale in the lead up to the event to help boost the charitable donation.
Rakesh Kapoor, store director of all three stores said, ‘Specsavers Comic Relief activity gave the residents of North West London a really easy way to make a big difference with this amazing cause.
'The communities fundraising efforts prove that everyone’s donations really do add up to astonishing amounts, and we are so grateful to the community to be able to help vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.’
The stores gallant effort helped to contribute to Specsavers overall total of £ 475,000 (and still counting) – bursting their £250,000 target!
