Borough eyecare experts are looking out for kids in the borough by championing road safety.

Children visiting Specsavers stores in Beckenham, Bromley, Orpington, Penge and West Wickham have been gifted a high visibility vest to take home.

A word from Specsavers

Bamini Raj, store director at Specsavers in West Wickham, said: ‘Now that the nights are drawing in, we want to make sure that our young people are travelling to and from school and after-school clubs in safety.

‘A simple high visibility vest increases the likelihood of them being spotted by motorists and cyclists in poor lighting conditions.’
