GIRLS ALOUD singer Kimberley Walsh has teamed up with Specsavers in Runcorn and Widnes and anti-bullying charity Kidscape to find the spectacle wearer of the year.

The lucky winner will receive £10,000 in cash and a dream holiday to the Bahamas at a star-studded awards event hosted by fashion guru Gok Wan.

Kimberley says: ‘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.

‘I’ve been wearing glasses for six years. I think I let my eyes get a little bit worse than I should have before I did start wearing them but now I have fully embraced them. It’s a new look for me.”

Kimberley is the face of Specsavers’ Love Glasses campaign. The competition will see £1 donated by Specsavers to Kidscape for every entry.

Chris Graham, store director at Specsavers in Runcorn said: ‘We know that people across Runcorn and Widnes love their glasses and we want to celebrate it.

“This 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.”
