Former Spice Girl and Heart Radio DJ Emma Bunton has teamed up with Specsavers in Ayr and anti-bullying charity Kidscape to launch this year’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition. 

The overall winner of competition will recieve £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. 

Calling all specs-wearing superstars
Linda Fulton, store director at Specsavers in Ayr, says: ‘We want to celebrate the specs-wearing superstars in Ayr. The Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards offer 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.’

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.

Star studded awards ceremony
There are five age categories – 16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59 and over 60s plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will mingle with celebrities at an awards ceremony in London on 6 October.

To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world, glasses wearers can enter the competition online at, or within Specsavers in Ayr, located on the High Street.
