Walworth resident, Charlotte Bennet has worn glasses since her childhood and used this as an incentive to enter the Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition last year.

Charlotte hugely surpassed her expectations, becoming one of the regional finalists for London.

As part of her prize, Charlotte attended her local store in Walworth for a photo shoot and prize presentation, including a £150 designer eye wear voucher.

Following in Ebony’s footsteps

To follow in Charlotte’s footsteps and be in with the chance of winning £10,000 cash and £1,000 worth of new glasses, simply wear your glasses with pride and share your best selfie at https://loveglasses.specsavers.co.uk/about.

You could also be mingling with celebrities at the star-studded awards evening in October.

In aid of a good cause

Now in its 22nd year, the competition raises valuable funds for anti-bullying charity Kidscape, which has totalled £400,000 to date.  

Store director, Suraj Shah said: ‘I’d like to encourage more of our specs wearing customers to log on and upload a selfie! It would be great if we could have another finalist or even winner from Walworth and Peckham this year!’

Age categories

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 attend the awards ceremony in London in October.
