Have your say

SPECSAVERS has teamed up with the Sunderland Echo to launch a photography competition to capture the special bond struck up by children with their friends, siblings or even family pets, from a young age.

Families are being invited to enter the Perfect Pairing competition, launched to celebrate the start of Specsavers “two free pairs” promotion in-store at Washington, which will see children qualify for one pair of specs free from the NHS and a second free pair from Specsavers.

Photos can be taken by either a child or a relative, so long as they capture the child’s favoured pairing. The winner will scoop a Pentax WG-3 digital camera worth more than £260 and a free sight test and eyecare for the winning parent and child.

Robin Stuart, store director at Specsavers, Washington, said: “To celebrate our fantastic new offer, we’re celebrating that perfect pairing that makes our children so happy. We know that at a young age, friendships are vitally important, it’s that bond that we’re hoping to capture through our photography competition.”

The two free pairs offer is available now and is valid for children up to the age of 16. Details on NHS sight tests are available in store or online at www.specsavers.co.uk.

The Pentax WG-3 camera is a waterproof, coldproof, shockproof and crushproof digital camera.

To enter the photography competition, e-mail your photo to echo.news@northeast-press.co.uk. Mark your email Perfect Pairing in the subject line and don’t forget to tell us the name, age, and address of the people in the picture.
