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

Since 2015, Specsavers stores have raised £848,000 and have pledged to raise £250,000 this year in a quest to break the £1million mark.

This will be done through the sale of the Comic Relief frames which cost just £2, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. They will be available to buy in store and, for the first time, the Comic Relief website.

Craig Bell, director at Specsavers in Berwick, said: “Our glasses this year are fantastic and we hope everyone gets into the fund-raising spirit by picking up a pair in store and help us smash our £1million fund-raising mark. We are really proud to support Comic Relief and all the good causes they fund.”

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.”

Red Nose Day is on Friday, March 15.
