Antrim Specsavers staff joined in this year’s Comic Relief theme ‘give us a wave’ by making their official Specsavers Red Nose Day glasses sparkle.

The glasses, which have a waving hand on each side, came in children’s and adult sizes and were sold at £2 each, with all the money donated to Comic Relief.

Glitter and sparkles

Davin Quinn, store director, said: ‘We were really pleased to once again be an official partner of Red Nose Day. Our staff got into the spirit of the day and personalised their special glasses with glitter and sparkles for a totally eye-catching look!

'It was a great fun day and we managed to raise lots of money for Comic Relief by selling the ‘waving’ glasses.’

Projects supported by Comic Relief

Projects being backed this year by Comic Relief include supporting people with dementia, helping people suffering from anxiety disorders and paying for life-saving medical attention for severely ill children in Uganda.
