A girl from Wisbech has won first prize in a Specsavers design competition that celebrated National Sunglasses Day held on Wednesday (June 27).
Jessica Rose Austen won the new pair of prescription sunglasses from the Wisbech Specsavers shop.
The competition was aimed at young artists under the age of 12, where they were tasked with designing a brand new pair of shades to celebrate National Sunglasses Day.
Jessica drew a multi-coloured frame with rainbow tinted lenses.
After Lee Smith, the Wisbech store’s assistant manager, chose Jessica’s picture as the winning design, she could pick a free pair of shades.
