This Red Nose Day, Specsavers will receive a spec-tacular makeover – in the form of giant waving glasses.

The iconic Specsavers logo will go all googly-eyed as giant replicas of the fundraising Red Nose Day glasses are installed on our storefronts across the country. Human-sized Red Nose Day glasses – in adult and children’s sizes – are available in Specsavers stores nationwide and cost £2, with all money raised  going straight to Comic Relief.

Irfan Akhtar, retail director at Specsavers in Chiswick, says: ‘Our giant Red Nose Day specs look brilliant. They have totally transformed our store and we’ve had a great reaction from passers-by.

We are encouraging everyone who buys a pair of the real Red Nose Day glasses to join in on a giant Mexican wave on social media. Simply strike a pose with your specs and post with the #GiveUsAWave to receive your very own wave back.

Specsavers stores nationwide have joined forces to support Comic Relief by pledging to raise at least £250,000 this Red Nose Day to help change countless lives both here in the UK and across Africa.

Specsavers has been a Red Nose Day partner since 2015 but this year for the first time ever we will also be hosting a Colour Fun Run. The event will take place around the grounds of the Specsavers offices at La Villiaze, St Andrews, and will be open to anyone who wants to support Red Nose Day, to have some fun and to keep fit at the same time!
