Specsavers Honiton is encouraging people to enter the competition for the chance to win £10,000 and a stay in the Bahamas.


FORMER Spice Girl and Heart Radio DJ Emma Bunton has teamed up with Specsavers in Honiton and anti-bullying charity Kidscape to launch this year’s search for the Wannabe Spectacle Wearers of the Year.

The overall winner of competition will be presented with £10,000 in cash and a dream stay at the Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas.

The prize will be presented later this year at a star-studded event in central London.

Emma is the face of this year’s Specsavers’ Love Glasses campaign and the associated Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition, now in its 20th year.

She said: “I’ve been wearing glasses for years, even before I needed a prescription. I wore them without lenses because I think they’re a great way to accessorise.

“Glasses should be fun. I love the variety, from dark frames to tortoiseshell and two-tone.”

Lillian Agelus, store director at Specsavers in Honiton, said: “We want to celebrate the specs-wearing superstars in Honiton. The Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards offer the perfect opportunity for men and women of any age to show how fabulous they look in glasses and to wear their specs with pride.”

For every eligible entry, Specsavers will donate £1 to Kidscape, which is celebrating 30 years of helping vulnerable children in 2015.

Emma added: “It’s so important to make sure there’s lots of support for children who get bullied. It’s an awful thing to go through and heart-breaking for kids and parents. As a mother, I’m proud to be part of this campaign and help spread the word.”

Enter the competition online at www.specsavers.co.uk/loveglasses or at your nearest Specsavers store.
