Three Plymouth residents have been chosen out of hundreds of people across the South West as regional finalists for Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year.

Exciting opportunity for Plymouth residents

Natasha Taylor, aged 29, Jessie Eaton, aged 25 and David West, aged 48 from Plymouth could win £10,000 and a luxury holiday in the Bahamas if they win, as well as a chance to mingle with the stars at the 20th annual Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards.

Glasses wearers have been showing off their specs style by sharing their selfies online and entering in stores across the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Natasha, Jessie and David were invited to visit their local Specsavers store in Plymouth, Armada Way to receive a bottle of champagne, a certificate and a £150 glasses voucher.

Congratulations to the three winners

Specsavers Plymouth, Armada Way store director Philip Gray says: ‘It’s brilliant that three of Plymouth’s own have been selected for such an exciting opportunity.

‘We just want to congratulate Natasha, Jessie and David and wish them good luck in getting through to the final.’

Ultimate winner

The awards were launched by Spice Girls singer and Heart FM DJ Emma Bunton earlier this year. If either semi-finalist triumphs in their age category, they could meet Emma at the celeb-packed awards ceremony at London’s 8 Northumberland Avenue on Tuesday 6 October.

There are five age categories – 16-24; 25-34; 35-44; 45-59 and 60+, plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. All age category winners will win a VIP makeover, with one overall winner taking home the ultimate accolade in specs wearing.

The ultimate Spectacle Wearer of the Year winner will receive £10,000, plus a week’s holiday for two in the Bahamas courtesy of Atlantis Paradise Island and a wardrobe of specs to suit every style.
