GIRLS Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh has launched the annual Love Glasses campaign in conjunction with Specsavers Warrington and anti-bullying charity Kidscape to find the spectacle wearer of the year.

The overall winner will be presented with £10,000 in cash and a dream holiday to the Bahamas at a star-studded awards event hosted by Gok Wan later this year.

Kimberley, who believes everyone should wear their glasses with pride, said: “I love my glasses. I like to make a real statement by wearing something bold. They are such a part of who you are and a fun way to express yourself.”

Geoff Smith, store director at Specsavers in Warrington, said: ‘We know that people in Warrington love their glasses and we want to celebrate it.

“The spectacle wearer of the year competition gives us the opportunity to prove that glasses are fabulous at any age by celebrating the specs wearers right on our doorstep who wear them with pride and plenty of style.”

There are four age categories - 16 to 24, 25 to 39, 40 to 59 and 60 plus - and the winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will attend the celebrity-studded grand final in London at 8 Northumberland Avenue on October 7.

You are aware miss rumble tumble that GypoJoe is well known for attacking white people who live in Social housing, have large families, live in areas of high crime & unemployment, calling them offensive names to degrade and insult them on an almost daily basis, but says nothing about predominately black areas which also have identical problems such as housing, unemployment, crime Etc?



He uses the tag "GypoJoe" because he is a hater of not only working class whites, but also the travelling community which have bases in Crayford and surrounding areas which the paper covers

Using this racist/offensive username is a bit like a white racist posting under the name "n***** joe" which is also wrong and offensive

"Erastus Piggot" was a blogger on the Newshopper who used to blog EXACTLY the same comments what this character "GypoJoe" is now posting




The Piggott blog closed down rather suddenly when angry internet users were asking who was the realm identity behind the Erastus Piggott blog,
a few names were posted up online and then suddenly the blog closed without any warning! Lol

"GypoJoe" has now taken up the racist baton of attacking white underclass >>>>>>>>> coincidence? or the same idiot?


Using the pseudonym "GypoJoe" is a highly racist, offensive, username to post under so its quite surprising that a member of the staff working on the the NewsShopper can breach its own T`s & C`s ????? LOL
