Specsavers staff in Newquay came together for this year’s Comic Relief. On Red Nose Day staff took part in a walking red event and prepped a table in the store with cookies for children to decorate with funny faces.

There was also an area for customers to grab a selfie with their official Red Nose Day glasses on and join in the giant Mexican wave on social media.

Thank you Newquay

The official Red Nose Day glasses in Newquay, which were exclusive to Specsavers, sold out contributing to a whopping £475,000 raised by Specsavers stores nationwide.

Store director, Steven Morris, said: ‘I can’t thank staff and our customers enough for getting into the spirit of Comic Relief and just having fun! It’s great news that we have exceeded our target for such an incredible cause.’

A great cause

Specsavers fundraising for Comic Relief will help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.

Specsavers has been a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
