Bridgnorth Specsavers helped educate children on the importance of eye health by inviting school pupils to the store.
Specsavers at 60 High Street, Bridgnorth, supported national road safety charity Brake by inviting children from St.John’s Primary School to join one of the ophthalmic opticians in store for a discussion on eye care. The school pupils spent an hour in one of the store’s test rooms as staff members talked through the equipment they use during a standard sight test. The Bridgnorth Specsavers store also handed out high-vis vests to both the children from St.John’s Primary School as well as other schools in the local area. The team also donated vests to the Codsall Brownies to be seen when out and about during the dark mornings and evenings.
Teresa Hughes, store director at Specsavers in Bridgnorth, said: ‘It’s great to get behind this national initiative as it highlights the importance of keeping children safe and seen.
‘We handed out vests to as many local community groups as we can to ensure the safety of children on the roads with the clocks going back.’
Specsavers stores across the country are also donating high-visibility vests to local schools as part of an initiative to keep local school children safe when out and about this winter.
Road Safety Week is organised by Brake, the national road safety charity which helps to save lives and support people bereaved by road crashes.
