Glasses wearers in Chiswick could land themselves an amazing prize of £10,000 in cash by entering this year’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition.

Entries are now open for Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2018 and Specsavers in Chiswick is encouraging specs wearers aged 16 and over to put themselves forward for the chance to win the grand prize.

Selected finalists will also be invited to join Steps singer Claire Richards and other celebrities at a dazzling awards ceremony in London, where the overall Spectacle Wearer of the Year will be crowned.

Celebrate your specs

Irfan Akhtar, store director at Specsavers Chiswick, said: ‘It would be great news if we had a Spectacle Wearer of the Year winner from Chiswick, and we are encouraging our customers to celebrate their specs and get involved with the activity this year.’

The competition has 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 mingle with celebrities at the awards in London in October.

£1 will also be donated to Kidscape for each entry made, with the money raised helping to support the charity in providing practical support to children and families affected by bullying. Spectacle Wearer of the Year has raised more than half a million pounds for anti-bullying charity Kidscape over the past nine years.
