Local mind coach and personal trainer Shane Haron has been named as overall winner of the 25 to 34 age category for Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2018.

And the team at Specsavers Romford in South Street are backing him to go all the way and claim the £10,000 cash prize – and wardrobe of new glasses worth £1,000 – at the awards ceremony in London on Wednesday 24 October.

In the spotlight

At the awards, Shane will mingle with celebrities including singer Claire Richards and TV presenter Rylan Clark.

Shane popped into the store last month to pick up his prize for being chosen as a regional finalist.

A word from the store director

Bhavi Mistry, store director in Romford, said: ‘We are delighted for Shane. He is a lovely guy and would make a fantastic winner.

‘He is really committed to helping his clients tackle their anxiety issues, and it is lovely to think that – were he to win – he would be able to help many more people, locally and further afield, to fulfil their full potential. Good luck Shane.’
