Tiverton Specsavers showed their support for Comic Relief this year by selling more than 300 specially designed novelty glasses in aid of Comic Relief.
Thanks to the support of customers and staff the opticians sold 312 pairs of official Red Nose Day glasses, exclusive to Specsavers, at £2 a pair in both children’s and adult sizes. All funds raised from the sale of the glasses were donated to Comic Relief.
This sell out success contributed to Specsavers stores nationwide beating their pledge of £250,000, raising a massive £475,000!
Emma Denham, Tiverton store director, said: ‘Comic Relief is a fantastic cause and we were delighted to be supporting it again with the sale of the official Red Nose Day glasses. Thank you to all our staff and customers for helping us reach our target.'
A great cause
Specsavers fundraising for Comic Relief will help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.
