Girls Aloud singer and West End actress Kimberley Walsh has teamed up with Specsavers in Stonehaven and anti-bullying charity Kidscape.
They hope to find a specs-wearer with ‘ Something Kinda Oooh’ as she launches the annual Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition.
This year’s overall winner will be presented with £10,000 in cash and a dream holiday to the Bahamas at a star-studded awards event hosted by Gok Wan later this year.
Kimberley said: ‘I love my glasses, I like to make a real statement by wearing something bold. They are such a part of who you are and a fun way to express yourself. Everyone should wear their specs with pride’
Kimberley is the face of Specsavers’ Love Glasses campaign and the associated Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition, which sees £1 donated by Specsavers to Kidscape for every entry.
Nicola Stewart, store director at Specsavers in Stonehaven, said: ‘We know that people in Stonehaven love their glasses and we want to celebrate it. The Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition gives us the opportunity to prove that glasses are fabulous at any age by celebrating the specs wearers right on our doorstep who wear them with pride and plenty of style.’
There are four age categories – 16-24; 25-39; 40-59 and 60+, plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will attend the celebrity-studded grand final in London at 8 Northumberland Avenue on October 7.
To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world, people can enter the competition online, www.specsavers.co.uk/loveglasses, via Facebook, www.facebook.com/specsavers, or at their nearest Specsavers store.
