Tring Specsavers asked visitors to join in with this year’s Comic Relief theme ‘give us a wave’ by purchasing a pair of wacky waving-hand glasses for just £2 to support the charity.
Red Nose Day fell on Friday 24 March this year, and all money raised from the specs was donated to Comic Relief.
Sweating for a good cause
The team at the store borrowed an exercise bike from the local gym – On The Limit and put their stamina to the test by taking turns to cycle from 9am-5pm. With all their hard work, they managed to raise £116 for the cause.
A word from the director
Divya Kukadia, retail director at Specsavers Tring, said: ‘The team are always thinking of fun ways to raise money for a good cause. As tiring as it may sound we were all very motivated because we knew what the money was going towards. Our Comic Relief activity was a really easy way for Tring residents to make a big difference collectively to this amazing cause. ‘
