Ballymena families are being encouraged to enter their much-loved dads in the ‘Spectacle Wearer of the Year’ Awards.

Local dads could be in with a chance of winning £10,000 in cash and a dream stay at the Atlantis Paradise Island, Bahamas, by simply sharing a selfie in their specs at www.specsavers.co.uk/loveglasses<http://www.specsavers.co.uk/loveglasses>,

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.

Valerie Penney, store director at Specsavers in Ballymena, says: “We 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 chance of a once-in-a-lifetime prize.”

There are five age categories - 16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59 and over 60s 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.
