Barnet 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 falls on Friday 24 March this year, and all money raised from the specs will be donated to Comic Relief.

Red nose bake off

The team at the store put their culinary skills to the test on the weekend by baking cakes and raised £110 for the cause.  Customers were treated to a delightful array of baked goods in return for a donation to the charity.

A word from the director

Pragna Raghwani, retail director at Specsavers Barnet, 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 Barnet 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.’
