Members of staff will also be taking part in the fundraising fun by ditching their usual uniforms in favour of their silliest red outfits and offering delicious home-baked cakes in exchange for donations on Red Nose Day (Friday 24 March). 

Comic Relief supporters in Swindon can also accessorise their red nose with comedy waving hand glasses.

Priced at just £2 and available in store now, all money raised from sales of the specs will be donated to Comic Relief. The glasses come in adult and children’s sizes.


Store director David Grieves said: ‘The glasses are fantastic and we’ll be encouraging everyone who buys a pair to also join our giant Mexican wave on social media as well. Simply strike a pose with your glasses and post with the #GiveUsAWave to receive your very own wave back.’

Making a difference

‘We’re always keen to support Comic Relief and are delighted to have the opportunity once again this Red Nose Day,’ David added. ‘Every penny we raise will go towards making a difference to the lives of millions, so I’d like to encourage all of customers to visit us in store and get involved!’

Specsavers has been a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
