The team from Abingdon Specsavers showed off their finest Mary Berry baking skills to raise money for Comic Relief 2017.  

A feast of fundraising 

Optical advisor Mat Rouvray, a former head chef who has a penchant for baking, led the store on a charity bake sale, while the rest of the team ditched their uniforms in favour of red outfits and sold the official Red Nose Day comedy specs, raising more than £1226 for Comic Relief.

A word from the store director

Andrew Threlfall, store director at Specsavers in Abingdon, said: ‘It was a great week for the team to get involved in and the comedy specs flew off the shelves.

‘The cake sale was top notch thanks to our team -  and our lovely customers were able to enjoy a variety of delicious sweets. Thank you to everyone for your generosity and time.'

£450,000 donation 

Specsavers is supporting Comic Relief to help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa and has raised more than £450,000 for the charity.
