pupils unveil sculpture made from glasses
and Highbridge youngsters have found a creative new use for their
Comic Relief specs, creating an eye-catching sculpture.
from Highbridge's King Alfred School visited the team at Specsavers
on Burnham-On-Sea High Street to present their work of art, a giant
smiling face, made from the Red Nose Day specs which were part of
the funny for money fundraising campaign.
director Rama Venkat says: "The sculpture looks fantastic
were so impressed by the creativity shown by the King Alfreds
always keen to support Comic Relief and have been pulling out all
the stops in store over the last two weeks to raise as much money
as we can for this fantastic charity."
pupils were really excited and enthused to take on this project,
thank you so much to Specsavers in Burnham for providing this opportunity,"
says Louise Amato, head of art at King Alfred School.
store raised a total of £583 for Comic Relief following a
week of fundraising activities as well as selling the official Red
Nose Day comedy specs.
Specsavers in Burnham-On-Sea 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 and pledged to
raise at least £250,000 for the charity. Specsavers has been
a Comic Relief partner since 2015.
