Fathers in the frame in Southport

FAMILIES in Southport are being encouraged to enter their much loved dads in the Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards, a competition that celebrates glasses wearers nationwide.  By simply sharing a selfie in their specs at:- SpecSavers.Co.UK/LoveGlasses, dads could be in with a chance of winning £10,000 in cash and a dream stay at the Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas.  The prize will be presented later this year by former Spice Girl and Heart FM DJ Emma Bunton at a star studded event in Central London, in October 2015. Shay Martin, 64, a former finalist and winner of Ireland's Spectacle Wearer of the Year, says:- "When I was invited to the grand final I was over the moon. My glasses are an important part of who I am and taking part in a competition that celebrates specs and glasses wearers was the best of fun.  As a father, grandfather and proud glasses wearer I think everyone should get involved this year, young, old and everything in between. It's a fantastic night out for you and your loved ones and a great way of celebrating your glasses..."   Stuart Roberts, store director at Specsavers in Southport, says:- "As a dad myself I know that guys can be a little shy when it comes to shouting about how great they look. This Father's Day we wanted to get families to put their dads forward to be in with a chance of a once in a lifetime prize." For every eligible entry, Specsavers will donate £1 to Kidscape, which is celebrating 30 years of helping vulnerable children in 2015. The money raised will help to support them in providing training, support and advice for children, parents, schools and those who may be affected by cases of bullying and abuse in the UK. There are 5 age categories:- 16 to 24, 25 to 34, 35 to 44, 45 to 59 and over 60's plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will mingle with celebrities at the awards ceremony in London.  To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs wearing world, glasses wearers can enter the competition online, or alternatively at your nearest Specsavers store.
