Kind customers in Specsavers North Bridge helped raise an impressive £299.63 during the store’s Red Nose Day fundraiser. The store’s charity total contributed to the £475,000 raised by Specsavers stores and offices throughout the UK.

Fabulous fancy dress

The staff held a fancy dress day and sold delicious cakes to help raise funds and awareness. The store also stocked Specsavers’ Red Nose Day waving glasses in small and large sizes.

The glasses cost only £2 with the whole £2 from each pair going directly to Comic Relief to spend on life-changing projects both at home in the UK and across Africa.

Overwhelming generosity

Jennifer Ballantyne, store director of Specsavers North Bridge, said: ‘We’d like to thank all our customers for their support – we have been overwhelmed by their generosity.

‘Our staff have had lots of fun striking poses with the glasses and everyone’s so pleased that we were able to contribute a great amount to Specsavers’ total.’
