Be a winner by posting your spectacles selfie

1 September 2016

Our selfie competition starts today – so if you are proud of the new spectacles or sunglasses you have bought from BBR Optometry then why not join in! You could even win £50 to spend on dining or staying at an Eat Sleep Drink property.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to post a photograph of yourself wearing the new eyewear on Twitter @BBROptometry using the hashtag #BBReatdrinksee

The competition is being run in conjunction with Eat Drink Sleep and the best photograph posted will win a £50 voucher to spend at one of their establishments. 

Eat Drink Sleep has three hotels – The Felin Fach Griffin, near Hay-on-Wye, and two in Cornwall being The Old Coastguard, Mousehole and The Gurnard’s Head, near St. Ives – all of which stand in magnificent countryside. 

Daniel Read, Practice Manager at BBR Optometry, said: “Today spectacles and sunglasses are seen very much as fashion items with many designer brands available and we thought this would be a fun way for people to see the wide range of styles we are able to offer.

“As a practice, we spend time with every patient to ensure they find a style of spectacles or sunglasses that really suits them and I would encourage everyone who now buys new eyewear from us to enter the competition and let others see just how amazing they look.

“I must also thank Eat Drink Sleep for providing a fantastic prize and I’m sure our winners will have a fantastic time whether they decide to spend the vouchers at the property near Hereford or else save them until they are on holiday in Cornwall where they can have two places to choose from,” he added.

So if you need a new pair of spectacles or sunglasses, or just fancy a new look, then why not come in to see us. Every purchase made qualifies for an entry into the competition, so there has never been a better time to get a new pair of spectacles.

Daniel added: “When selecting the winners, we will be looking for creativity, whether that be in the pose that is taken or the background chosen, so I am looking forward to seeing the entries and would like to wish everyone the best of luck,” he added.

Not good at Twitter! Don’t worry - you can still join in the fun by emailing your photograph to and we will post it for you.
