This Thursday 02 March, right through the weekend, Specsavers in Newtownards is inviting customers to ‘Give us a Wave’ to celebrate Comic Relief.

Supporters in Newtownards can pop in store and pick up a pair of comedy waving hand glasses for only £2, with all money raised donated to Comic Relief.

Fun with buns

This year, Specsavers special day to celebrate Comic Relief in on Thursday 02 March, so Specsavers Newtownards will be selling buns and the special glasses for a donation.

Leigh Nelson, store director said: ‘Comic Relief is a really fun time in store for us, our staff get dressed up and get busy baking to make as much money as possible for the charity. Every penny goes to projects which help poor and vulnerable people living difficult lives in both the UK and across Africa. Our stores across the UK and all in Northern Ireland hope to raise at least £250,000 for the charity, so to be a small part of that is fantastic.’

Give us a wave

On Thursday 02 March, the store will have large Give us a Wave frames and an large Instagram cardboard cut-out for the public to get extra special snaps, and the fun will continue throughout the weekend until Sunday 05 March.

Leigh continued: ‘Anyone who buys a pair of the special Comic Relief glasses, takes a selfie and publishes it on social media, simply need to add the hashtag #GiveusaWave to get their own wave back!’

Specsavers has been a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
