Children in Ayr became more visible on the streets thanks to the team at Specsavers in Ayr.
As well as encouraging drivers to have their eyes checked to ensure they are safe to drive, staff donated high-visibility vests to local schools and community groups to help make sure children are seen as the days get darker.
Hundreds of hi-vis jackets were donated to Alphabet Nursery, the 17th A & B Ayr Rainbows and Busy Bees Nursery to help keep them safe during the darker, winter nights.
Step up for safe streets
Linda Fulton, store director at Specsavers Ayr, said: ‘With the days getting darker, these vests will help make sure children are visible when they are out on the roads. We also want to encourage drivers to “Step up for safe streets” by having regular eye tests to make sure their eyesight is as good as it can be.
‘We hope that all of the children find the vests useful when they are out and about, especially in the darker winter months. We also have plenty more of the hi-vis jackets to donate to local groups, so we urge anyone to get in touch and we would be happy to help.’
