Specsavers in Hamilton is joining Specsavers stores nationwide in support of Comic Relief and Red Nose Day.

Staff at the store, in Quarry Street, will be encouraging customers to donate to the cause – and all money raised will help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both in the UK and across Africa.

Every customer who buys Specsavers’ Red Nose Day glasses until Friday 24 March will get the chance to take part in the 'Guess the number of sweets in the jar' competition.

A word from our store director

Specsavers Hamilton store director Emma Foster said: ‘Comic Relief carries out fantastic work all over the world and it’s important for us to do all we can to raise money for the cause.

‘We hope that customers pop in to show their support.’

Novelty red glasses complete with waving hands are available in store now. They are priced at £2 will all proceeds from sales of the specs being donated to Comic Relief. The glasses come in adult and children’s sizes.

Customers are also being encouraged to take a waving selfie while wearing the glasses and share it on social media using the hashtag #giveusawave
