Staff at Specsavers in Hucknall donned their local team football stripes last week as they answered the Sport Relief hotline.

The team went to the Specsavers corporate office at Cirrus House in Nottingham to answer the Sport Relief hotline, taking donations from the public on behalf of the charity. 

They were kitted out in football shirts provided by the Hucknall Town Football Club, which the store supports. They complemented the shirts with shorts, long socks and face paint in the Hucknall team stripes. 

Janet Archer, store director, says: ‘The team had so much fun dressing up and doing our bit to support Sport Relief. Last year, we dressed up as superheroes, but this year we proudly wore our Hucknall football shirts to get into the spirit of it. Sport Relief always manages to raise huge amounts, and it’s great to know that we were part of that again this year.’ 

Sport Relief is a biennial charity event from Comic Relief, in association with BBC Sport, which brings together the worlds of sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world's poorest countries.
