‘It is brilliant to be shortlisted again for the competition. I enjoy taking part because it is a fun competition to be part of.’

Style hunter

‘I’d recommend people to try different styles of glasses and ask a frames stylist to help them try out a new range or look to give people confidence to wear glasses.’

A confident contender

Specsavers Portadown and Craigavon Director Peter Rice said – ‘Brian isn’t afraid to try different frame styles and looks, which make him a good contestant for his age category. We wish him the best of luck in the rest of the competition going forward.’

Glitzy London awards ceremony

The awards were launched by Steps star Claire Richards earlier this year. If Brian triumphs in his age category, he will have the chance to win £10,000, meet Claire and rub shoulders with many other celebs at the glitzy awards ceremony at London’s 8 Northumberland Avenue in October.
