Gabrielle Coleman, a Falmouth University English student, has been selected from more than 13,000 proud glasses wearers as a regional semi-finalist for Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year.

Next steps

Gabrielle, aged 23, could follow in the footsteps of last year’s Award winner, Love Island hunk Alex Miller, winning £10,000 and the chance to mingle with the stars at the annual Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards. 

Fashion statement

Gabrielle, a customer of Specsavers Falmouth is a keen specs wearer. She said: ‘I love my specs and wear some great round frames from the Kylie Minogue range. I think you can get away with something a bit edgier in Falmouth. If I won the £10,000 I would learn to drive and buy myself a car.’

Regional prize

Gabrielle visited Falmouth Specsavers to receive a bottle of champagne, a certificate and a £150 glasses voucher, while Jane visited her local store in Helston to receive her prize.
