Ready for Red Nose Day
This Red Nose Day (Friday 24 March) supporters in Merton borough can accessorise their red nose with comedy waving hand glasses.
Priced at just £2 and in 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.
The borough’s Specsavers stores in Wimbledon and Morden hope to donate £1300 in total from their sales of the comedy waving hand specs. These donations will go towards an annual pledge by the business to raise at least £250,000 for the charity.
A word from the stores
Andrew Kemp, store director at Specsavers in Wimbledon and Morden, said: ‘Our Comic Relief activity is a really easy way for borough residents to make a big difference collectively to this amazing cause. For just £2, we can help vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.
‘We are also challenging local residents to 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.’
Specsavers has been a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
