Specsavers staff at The Gyle had the party in full swing when they held a Hollywood themed event to encourage customers and passers-by to enter its Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition.

Sporting a red carpet, the store transformed into the walk of fame for visitors to The Gyle, as staff encouraged spectacle wearers to enter its national search.

Hollywood
Craig Daker, store director at Specsavers in the Gyle, said: ‘Staff and customers really enjoyed the Hollywood themed day, and it really encouraged customers to come out of their shell and enjoy being part of the competition.

It’s the perfect opportunity for men and women of any age to show how fabulous they look in glasses and to wear their specs with pride.’ 

Dream prize
The overall winner of competition will be presented with £10,000 in cash and a dream stay at the Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas. The prize will be presented later this year at a star-studded event in central London. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will mingle with celebrities at an awards ceremony in London on 6 October. 

For every eligible entry Specsavers will donate £1 to Kidscape, which is celebrating 30 years of helping vulnerable children in 2015. 

The money raised will help to support them in providing training, support and advice for children, parents, schools and those who may be affected by cases of bullying and abuse in the UK.
