Specsavers stores across London supported Comic Relief this year by selling funny frames in-store, which definitely brought a smile to customers’ faces.
It is the third year that Specsavers has supported the charity, with this year’s red jester glasses celebrating the charity’s comic ethos.
Since 2015, Specsavers stores have been raising funds for Comic Relief, and this year, stores smashed the £1million fundraising mark. The Comic Relief frames were sold at £2 each, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity.
A word from Comic Relief
Catherine Cottrell, fundraising and partnerships executive director at Comic Relief, adds: ‘We are so pleased to have Specsavers continual support. It was great to see people having fun wearing their Comic Relief specs to help us raise much-needed funds on Red Nose Day.’
Recycling the frames
Customers who would like to recycle the glasses after can return them to the store and they will be sent onto a specialist recycling company. For more information visit www.specsavers.co.uk or www.comicrelief.com.
