Fife Flyers in the frame for Comic Relief fundraising

Specsavers is once again supporting Comic Relief by selling funny frames in stores and ice hockey team, Fife Flyers are getting in on the act to raise awareness and funds for the charity.

It is the third Red Nose Day that Specsavers has supported by launching the frames in store, with this year’s red jester-themed glasses 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 their quest to break the £1million mark.

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

Store director, Andrew Hepburn, says: ‘Our glasses this year are fantastic and we hope everyone gets into the fundraising spirit by picking up a pair in store and help us smash our £1 million fundraising mark.

‘Specsavers stores in Dunfermline, Glenrothes and Leven are proud sponsors of Fife Flyers and we’re delighted the team are backing our fundraising campaign for Comic Relief.’

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 stores in Leven, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, Dunfermline and St Andrews now ahead of Red Nose Day on Friday 15 March. Customers who would like to recycle the glasses after Red Nose Day will be able to return them to their local store and they will be sent onto a specialist recycling company.
