It’s that time of year again! Comic Relief has rolled around once more like it does every couple of years to invite us to get our charitable hats on and do something funny for money. This year the challenge is to ‘make your face funny for money’ and I’ve teamed up with Specsavers in Bristol to tell you all about a special Red Nose Day themed event taking place this Thursday in Broadmead!
To celebrate the opening of the very first franchise store of Specsavers, and all the charitable work it’s done for the Bristol community over the years (including working for countless local charities including Above & Beyond), there will be a special event being held at the Bristol Broadmead store this Thursday 19th February. It’s also the store’s 30th birthday, and if that’s not a reason for celebration I don’t know what is!
The event will take place from 1-4pm, with a photobooth and props inside for passersby to pop in and make their faces ‘funny for money’. All they are asking for in return is a £1 donation to Comic Relief, and you will get two prints of your photo, one to take home, and one to enter into a prize draw to win a brand new pair of specs! To help kick-off the day’s celebrations, The Lord Mayor of Bristol, Cllr Alastair Watson will be visiting the store at 1pm, and there will also be goody bags and balloons for everyone who comes along, so get yourself down there and get your best faces on.
If you do pop along then be sure to post your photos in the comments or tweet me @lilydoughball, and see if you can do better than mine!
