Brecon optician donates vests to schools
Staff at Specsavers in Brecon have donated 60 high-visibility vests to primary schools in the local area to help make sure children can be seen when they are out walking in the community.
The store, located on High Street, contacted Mount Street Junior School and Priory Primary School to see if they could donate high-visibility vests to its pupils.
Hannah Jones, optical advisor at Specsavers in Brecon, visited the schools to donate the vests and talk to the children about the importance of being safe and seen on the roads.
‘Being safe and seen’
Claire Corcoran, director at Specsavers in Brecon, said: ‘Specsavers is passionate about promoting the importance of road safety, so it was great to donate the high-visibility vests to local primary schools.
We’re really keen to emphasise the importance of staying safe to young people who may not realise how dangerous the roads can be.
‘The vests are a fun way to educate pupils about the road safety message, and they will be particularly useful in outdoor activities as well as school trips to ensure the young children can be clearly seen by all road users.’
