Specsavers smashes £1 million fundraising mark for Comic Relief

Specsavers once again supported Comic Relief this year, with Specsavers stores in South London selling funny frames in-store, which definitely brought a smile to customers’ faces.

It is the third Red Nose Day that Specsavers has supported the charity by launching the frames, with this year’s red glasses jester theme in keeping with the charity’s comic ethos.

Since 2015, Specsavers stores have been raising funds for Comic Relief, and this year, stores smashed the £1million fundraising mark.

The Comic Relief frames were sold at £2 each, with proceeds going to the charity.

Specsavers Walworth Store Director Suraj Shah said: ‘Our glasses this year were fantastic, and we are so grateful to everyone who popped in to see us over the past couple of weeks to pick up a jester-themed pair for themselves.”

Customers who would like to recycle the glasses can return them to the store and they will be sent onto a specialist recycling company.
