This year Minehead Specsavers not only sold out of the official Red Nose Day glasses but had to call in more for local people keen to support Comic Relief!

Pledge busting success

Customers bought 211 pairs of the novelty glasses with waving hands at £2 a pair in both children’s and adult sizes.

This sell out success contributed to Specsavers stores nationwide beating their pledge of £250,000 and raising a massive £475,000!

Philippa Hales, Minehead store director, said: ‘We were overwhelmed by the success of the Red Nose Day glasses. Thank you so much to all our customers for supporting this year’s Comic Relief. We hope that you all had as much fun as us in store!’

A great cause

Specsavers fundraising for Comic Relief will help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.

Specsavers has been a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
