Families were invited to take part in Worcester Specsavers Perfect Pairing competition, where they were asked to take pictures of the loving bond shown between children and their best friends. One picture touched the judges like no other, and this was from Ellen Sparkes.

The picture displayed Ellen's daughter Isabelle and cousin Oliver, both two years of age, walking hand in hand. The judges made the unanimous decision and Ellen was ecstatic when she discovered that she'd won; 'I was absolutely over the moon,' she said.

Her prize was a top of the range £250, digital camera, together with a free sight test and eyecare voucher for both herself and Isabella: 'I lost my pair of glasses so to get a new pair is an absolute bonus,' she added.
