Seeing red!

Staff at Specsavers in Milngavie saw red and raised an impressive £683.08 for Comic Relief.

The store’s Red Nose Day fundraising total contributed to the colossal £335,000 raised by Specsavers stores and offices throughout the UK.

Staff at the opticians encouraged customers to dig deep in support of Comic Relief with a whole host of fun activities.

Customers donated generously to the bake sale and also got the chance to take part in a game of ‘guess how many frames are in the jar’. Staff dressed in Red Nose Day tshirts to encourage donations, and there was face and nail painting for the kids, and a drawing competition.

The store also stocked Specsavers’ Red Nose Day glasses in small and large sizes – and sold 226 pairs. The glasses cost £3 with £1 donated to Comic Relief.

Caroline Kinsey, store director of Specsavers in Milngavie, said: ‘‘We’d like to thank all our customers for their support.

‘‘All our staff have had lots of fun making their faces funny for money this Red Nose Day and everyone’s so pleased that we were able to contribute a great amount to Specsavers’ total.’’
