Specsavers staff in Braintree dared to rid their legs of hair in exchange for donations to Comic Relief.

The store nominated a number of male staff members to have their legs waxed. Evidently the pain paid off as the store raised a great £420.44 for the good cause.

Doing something different

Mike Bromidge, store director at Specsavers Braintree, says: ‘We have had such a fun time supporting Red Nose Day in previous years but this year we thought we should do something a little different – and why not get your legs waxed for a good cause!’

‘Although it was a little painful, it was well worth it to raise money for Comic Relief!’

Selling specs 

The store was also selling wacky waving Red Nose Day glasses, for just £2, with the money raised going straight to Comic Relief.
