Stores bolster Comic Relief total
Specsavers in Beckenham and Penge have combined to raise over £200 for Comic Relief.
Over the course of the past month the stores have both been selling comedy specs for £2 each, which feature quirky waving hands. Specsavers stores across the country have been selling to glasses in support of Comic Relief, in an effort to raise over £250,000 for the charity.
With the help of both the Beckenham and Penge stores, Specsavers have managed to collect over £470,000, bursting through their target with ease.
