The Pocklington Specsavers team get ready for Red Nose Day.

A Pocklington-based optician is hoping to raise a record amount of money for Comic Relief ahead of this year’s Red Nose Day.

Specsavers will be hosting a week-long programme of fun activities starting next Monday (20 March).

The team will kick-start the fundraising efforts with a children’s design-your-own-nose colouring competition, with a children’s birthday party for 10 at Blue Sky Day Nursery on offer as first prize.

It will be running a series of fundraising events throughout the week.

Robert Winlow, store director, said: “Our colouring competition templates are available in store now.

“We’re encouraging the people of Pocklington to stop by, get involved, and donate to charity.”
