Generous staff and customers at the Dumfries opticians raised £300 for Comic Relief.

Selling comedy specs

Customers visiting the Specsavers store in the Loreburne Shopping Centre up until Friday 24 March had the chance to donate to the cause by buying their own pairs of novelty red waving hand glasses.

Specsavers Dumfries store director Jill Dickson said: ‘We’re really pleased to have raised money for the cause.

'Customers really got into the spirit of things and enjoyed wearing their novelty specs.

‘Thank you to everyone who donated – it’s very much appreciated.’
