Generous staff and customers at an opticians in Motherwell have donated £620 to Comic Relief.

Staff from Specsavers on Brandon Parade organised fun activities in the run-up to Red Nose Day on 24 March.

Staff encouraged customers to donate to the cause, and customers even got the chance to buy their own pair of novelty red waving hand glasses.
