ONE of Ipswich’s proudest glasses wearers has been honoured as they take a step closer to winning the coveted Spectacle Wearer of the Year Award and a two-week luxury holiday in St Lucia.
Monica Feildon, from Ipswich was chosen from hundreds of entries from across Anglia. Known as the Oscars of the glasses world, the awards celebrate specs wearers from the UK and Republic of Ireland, across four age categories: 15-24; 25-39; 40-59 and 60+.
The awards were launched by Spice Girl and stage sensation Melanie C earlier this year, who Adam could meet at the awards ceremony if they triumph in their age category.
The awards will be held at London’s iconic Royal Opera House on Tuesday 10 September. All age category winners will win a VIP makeover, with one overall winner taking home the ultimate accolade in specs wearing.
Runner-up prizes include weekend trips to Paris and London with spending money.
