Win a cottage break worth £700

Specsavers logoSpecsavers is giving away up to £700 to spend on cottage accommodation in 2015, for four people.

How many times have you searched the house in a frenzy after misplacing a pair of glasses? Just the once, more than five, too many to count? That sickening moment when your heartbeat quickens and you end up looking in the same places over and over again, just in case they've miraculously appeared since the last time you checked. We're bad enough with our own glasses, so just think about all the extra nooks and crannies that kids' have to lose theirs in...

Specsavers' new campaign comically highlights all the eccentric and amusing ways children manage to lose their glasses. We know it is an inevitable fate that children will misplace their glasses at some point in their lives, but with Specsavers new offer they now get two free pairs of glasses - you can't get better than that. 

To mark the occasion, Specsavers has sent the first ever bespectacled teddy into space. The teddy's name is Jerrie - named via a nationwide competition among Specsavers store staff. The name was chosen in honour of Geraldyn 'Jerrie' Cobb who, in the 1950s, became the first woman to complete astronaut-style training but never made it into space.

For a breathtaking view of Jerrie the teddy on her journey into space, watch the video below.
