Specsavers in Sutton, Wallington and Worcester Park are seeking local glasses wearers for this year’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition, which is giving away a stunning grand prize of £10,000 in cash.
Jonathan Butterworth, director at the Specsavers stores, said: ‘We’re aiming to get as many people as possible to enter this year’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year.'
In it to win it
The stores are urging customers aged 16 and over to enter Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2018 by sending in selfies of themselves wearing their specs. A number of regional finalists will be selected to attend a dazzling awards ceremony in London, where the overall Spectacle Wearer of the Year will be crowned by Steps singer Claire Richards.
£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.
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.
To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world, glasses wearers can enter the competition online at specsavers.co.uk/loveglassecomp. Deadline for entries is 1 July 2018.
