Specsavers Ludlow is hosting a week of fundraising ahead of Red Nose Day (Friday 24 March).

Ditching the uniforms in favour of red

The team are ditching their uniforms in favour of red clothing this week (Monday 20 March until Friday 24 March), with all proceeds raised going to Comic Relief. The store is also inviting Ludlow residents to accessorise with the official comedy glasses, priced at just £2 and available to buy now.

And the fun doesn't stop there!

As the store will be hosting a bake sale for the entire week, with the team channelling their inner Mary Berry to bake a spread of sweet treats. All the goodies will be on offer to visiting customers and passers-by in return for donations.

A word from the store director

Nicola Aubrey store director at Specsavers in Ludlow, said: ‘This is a great opportunity for us to get behind a brilliant cause, as well as having some fun with the team. We’re hoping to raise as much money as possible, so please do come down and show your support.

‘The comedy specs are also fantastic and we’ll be encouraging everyone who buys a pair to also join our giant Mexican wave on social media as well. You just need to strike a pose with your glasses and post with the #GiveUsAWave to receive your very own wave back.’
