North Finchley Specsavers raised over £100 by asking visitors to join in with this year’s Comic Relief theme ‘give us a wave’ through purchasing a pair of wacky waving-hand glasses for just £2 to support the charity. Red Nose Day fell on Friday 24 March this year, and all money raised from the specs was donated to Comic Relief.
Neha Shah, store director at Specsavers North Finchley, says: ‘Our Comic Relief activity is a really easy way for North Finchley residents to make a big difference collectively to this amazing cause.
'For just £2, we can help vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.’
Specsavers in North Finchley joined Specsavers stores nationwide to support Comic Relief and collectively they raised more than £400,000 for the cause.
