Comic Relief in Yeovil was hailed a huge success after Specsavers sold out of the official Red Nose Day glasses, accessorised with waving hands.

Pledge exceeded

Thanks to everyone’s support and the kind generosity of customers 445 pairs of the novelty glasses were sold!

The official Red Nose Day glasses were exclusive to Specsavers and sold for £2 a pair with all money donated to Comic Relief.

In total Specsavers stores nationwide beat their pledge of £250,000, raising a massive £475,000.

Yeovil store director, Jerry Shrubb, said: ‘Thanks to everyone who came in to the store to take part in Comic Relief and purchase their novelty glasses. It’s a fantastic cause and one which we’re proud to support with such a unique offering!’

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.
