Margaret is in the Frame for a Win
A Cookstown woman has been chosen from thousands of proud glasses wearers as a finalist for Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year.
Margaret Slane is a frequent customer of Antrim Specsavers. Pictured with Margaret are the Antrim Specsavers Director Davin Quinn and Store Manager Ita Armour who encouraged Margaret to take part in the competition in the over 60 category.
Glasses wearers across the UK and Republic of Ireland have been showing off their specs style by sharing their selfies online throughout the spring and summer.
The awards were launched by Steps star Claire Richards earlier this year. If she triumphs in her age category, Margaret will meet Claire and rub shoulders with many other celebs at the glitzy awards ceremony at London’s 8 Northumberland Avenue in October.
There are five age categories – 16-24; 25-34; 35-44; 45-59 and over 60, plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. All age category winners will win a VIP makeover, with one overall winner taking home the ultimate accolade in specs wearing.
