Get your funny frames at Specsavers Bristol on Merchant Street for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day on Friday 15 March.
Fundraising for Red Nose Day 2019
Fundraising is underway at Specsavers in Bristol as they get behind the Specsavers UK drive to hit their target of £1million total raised for Comic Relief.
It’s the third Red Nose Day that Specsavers stores have supported the charity by launching funny frames, with this year’s red glasses jester theme in keeping with the charity’s comic ethos.
Since becoming an official supporter in 2015, Specsavers has raised £848,000 and has pledged to raise £250,000 this year in its quest to break the £1million mark.
Specsavers in Broadmead are selling the Comic Relief frames for just £2 a pair, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. They will also be available to buy for the first time on the Comic Relief website.
Dame Mary Perkins, Specsavers co-founder, says: “Our glasses this year are fantastic and we hope everyone gets into the fundraising spirit by picking up a pair from their local Specsavers store and help us smash our £1million fundraising mark. We are really proud to support Comic Relief and all the good causes they fund.”
Catherine Cottrell, fundraising and partnerships executive director at Comic Relief, adds: “We’re so pleased Specsavers is continuing to support us for the third year. It’s great to see people having fun wearing their Comic Relief specs to help us raise much needed funds on Red Nose Day and we’re thrilled to now be offering these on our online shop too.”
Frames are available in your local Specsavers in Broadmead now ahead of Red Nose Day on Friday 15 March.
Recyling your glasses after Red Nose Day
Customers who would like to recycle the glasses after Red Nose Day will be able to return them to the store and they will be sent onto a specialist recycling company.
