Staff at Specsavers in Ammanford have donated 20 hi-visibility vests to a Rainbow group in a bid to raise awareness of road safety.

The store on Quay Street gave 20 luminous jackets to the Gorslas Rainbows to ensure that they are visible to motorists when out walking in the community.

Road safety

Store manager Lorna Phillips visited the group and spoke to them about road safety and the importance of regular sight tests.

Kelly Serwata, leader of the Gorslas Rainbows is grateful for the donation: ‘As an organisation that encourages children to embrace the outdoors, it is great for the group to receive this support from Specsavers and to hear more about how vital road safety is first-hand from Lorna.

‘I’d like to thank Specsavers for the hi-visibility vests; they will come in handy throughout the year and ensure that drivers are mindful of the girls when we’re on outdoor trips and activities.’

‘Staying alert’

Kevin McCarthy, store director at Specsavers in Ammanford, says: ‘Specsavers is keen to emphasise the importance of staying alert on the roads whether it’s on the school run or on a group trip, and the luminous jackets are a fun way of educating young people to make sure that they stay safe and seen.’
