Red Nose Day 2015 is set to offer more than just Red Noses this year. Bright red comedy glasses with hair raising eyebrows, as modelled by the fabulous Gok Wan are also coming to Stranraer.

Visitors to Specsavers located at George Street can follow in the footsteps of Gok Wan and make their faces funny for money with Specsavers’ official Red Nose Day glasses in small and large sizes, for just £3 with £1 donated to Comic Relief.

Elaine Hawthorn, store director of Specsavers Stranraer says: ‘We’re all ready to make our faces funny for money in support of the great work that Comic Relief does. We want to encourage everyone, young and old, to join in the fun and buy their Red Nose Day glasses.

‘We have organised a whole host of fundraising activities and we’re looking forward to getting everyone involved in the fun.’

Staff will be taking part in a sponsored night walk around the town and will be hosting a bake sale. There will also be two raffles – one for a teddy bear and another for a £40 voucher for the Tigh-na-Mara restaurant – and a ‘guess the celebrity’ sweepstake.

Specsavers in Stranraer has joined Specsavers stores nationwide to support Comic Relief to help poor and vulnerable people living tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.

Whether it’s at home, work or school, the public are being encouraged to make their faces funny for money this Red Nose Day, which takes place on Friday 13 March.

From painting their faces to donning the Specsavers funny specs millions of people up and down the country will be making their faces funny and raising life changing cash. The money raised through Red Nose Day helps poor and vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and across Africa.
