Smile Makers competition

Do you know someone special who has brought a smile to their community during the pandemic through an act of kindness, charitable endeavours or giving the gift of their time?

If so, we want to receive your nominations for your local community champion of 2020.

Regional winners from throughout the UK will win £1,000, a Specsavers' voucher to spend in store and a call from Martin and Roman Kemp to thank them for their kindness.
