Spice up your specs in national contest

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

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

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. Rob Lofting, store director at Specsavers in Hastings, said: “We want to celebrate the specs-wearing superstars in Hastings. 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 entry Specsavers will donate £1 to Kidscape, which is celebrating 30 years of helping vulnerable children. Money raised will help to support them in providing training, support and advice for children, parents, and schools.
