Honey Wiltshire, a private health sector carer from Devon, secured a place in the semi-finals of the Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition.

Pleasant surprise

Honey, who qualified in the 45-59 age category, collected her prize, including a £150 eye wear voucher, champagne and a certificate from the store.

Honey was amazed to find out she had made it through to the semi-finals: ‘I took my selfie when I’d just finished working a night shift so was very surprised when I received the call to say I was a semi-finalist!

‘I’ve worn glasses since I was in my 20s and absolutely love them. I have 15 pairs at the moment and some of them are very quirky.'

A word from the director

Store director, Emily Water, added: ‘Congratulations to Honey! We were delighted to welcome her to Barnstaple to collect her prize. ‘Honey’s love for glasses style really shines through, she’d make a great ambassador.’
