Smash £1 million target? Better get to Specsavers

22nd February 2019

Specsavers is hoping to smash its £1million fundraising target for us this Red Nose Day, which is back on 15 March.

It's the third Red Nose Day that Specsavers has supported us by launching funny frames in store, raising £848,000 so far.

This year’s red jester themed glasses are as popular as ever, and the lovely opticians have pledged to raise a further £250,000 to break the £1 million mark. That's the kind of maths we enjoy.

Frames cost just £2 a pair, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity. They will be available to buy in local Specsavers stores and, for the first time, in our online shop(opens in new window).

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."
