Taunton Specsavers showed their support for Comic Relief this year, selling more than 350 specially designed novelty glasses in aid of Comic Relief.

Fundraising success

Thanks to the support of customers and staff the opticians sold 366 pairs of official Red Nose Day glasses, exclusive to Specsavers, at £2 a pair in both children’s and adult sizes. All funds raised from the sale of the glasses were donated to Comic Relief.

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

Emma Denham, Taunton store director, said: ‘We were thrilled with the number of glasses we sold in store! It’s clear that there is a lot of support in Taunton for Comic Relief.

'Thank you so much to everyone who supported this wonderful cause.’

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.
