Irvan Risnander, 34, of Leagrave, was given the VIP treatment at the Specsavers awards, hosted to raise money for anti-bullying charity, Kidscape. The event raised £45,000 for the charity. Mr Risnander was presented with the award for Spectacle Wearer of the Year.
He said: “The whole experience has been incredible. When I first entered the competition, I never thought in a million years that I would be here tonight to celebrate spectacle wearers as a grand finalist.
“I am honoured to have been a part of a competition which encourages people to wear their glasses with pride and confidence. I would urge all spectacle wearers to embrace their frames and love their glasses.”
The Specsavers awards were hosted by fashion guru Gok Wan and a number of celebrities attended the event.
