Geek is chic as Arbroath’s spectacle wearers were finding out recently and one of them could be in line for an amazing prize.

Specsavers have teamed up with celebrity Melanie C. and anti-bullying charity Kidscape in the Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition to offer one lucky winner a holiday to St Lucia.

Kenny Johnston, store director at Specsavers in the Abbeygate Centre, Arbroath, said: “We see so many people in the store who look absolutely amazing in their glasses. 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.”

Melanie added: “A big reason why I’m supporting the awards is because we all need to do something to beat the bullies and whether kids are being bullied for their appearance or even wearing glasses, it’s important that it stops. For every entry Specsavers will donate £1 to Kidscape so get your specs on, grab a picture and enter!”
