Staff and kind customers at Specsavers in Cameron Toll raised an impressive £1,422 during the store’s Red Nose Day fundraisers.

The stores’ charity total contributed to the £475,000 raised by Specsavers stores and offices throughout the UK.

Staff at the Cameron Toll store challenged themselves to complete a 425 mile run, the distance from the Edinburgh store to Specsavers headquarters in Guernsey, in exchange for donations, raising over £800.

The store also sold waving Specsavers Red Nose Day glasses, raising an additional £546. The glasses cost only £2 with the whole £2 from each pair going directly to Comic Relief to spend on life-changing projects both at home in the UK and across Africa.

Huge thank you

Damien Noade, store director of Specsavers Cameron Toll, said: ‘We’d like to thank all our customers for their support – we have been overwhelmed by their generosity.

‘The running challenge was a great success and we raised a fantastic amount for Comic Relief. ‘All our staff have had lots of fun this Red Nose Day and everyone’s so pleased that we were able to contribute a great amount to Specsavers’ total.’
