Visitors to Specsavers in Portishead are able to join in Comic Relief 2017 by purchasing a pair of Specsavers’ official Red Nose Day glasses.

The glasses, which have a waving hand on each side, come in children’s and adult sizes and are just £2, with all the money donated to Comic Relief.

£250,000 pledge

The team has joined Specsavers stores nationwide to support Comic Relief and are planning on dressing up for the day and hosting a cake sale. 

Specsavers has pledged to raise at least £250,000 for the charity.

A word from the store director

Store director and optometrist, David Perrigo said, ‘Our Red Nose Day specs have been flying out the door and the team are loving them. Comic Relief comes around every two years and this is a great way to get involved and support a very important cause.

‘We hope all our lovely customers purchase a pair of the novelty specs and join in the fun!’


Customers are also being encouraged to take a waving selfie while wearing the glasses and share it on social media using the hashtag #giveusawave.
