Welwyn Garden City team prepping for their bake sale

The team at the Welwyn Garden City Specsavers store put their culinary skills to the test on the weekend by baking cakes to raise cash for Comic Relief, they raised £172. Customers were treated to a delightful array of baked goods in return for a donation to the cause.

Fundraise for Comic Relief

Welwyn Garden City 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, and all money raised from the sale of specs was donated to Comic Relief.

For a good cause

Andrew Durrant, dispensing optician at Specsavers Welwyn Garden City, said: ‘The team are always thinking of fun ways to raise money for a good cause. Our Comic Relief activity is a really easy way for Welwyn Garden City 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.’
