Children’s safety in the frame in Stafford
Pupils at a Staffordshire school will be seen more clearly on the roads thanks to a generous donation of high-visibility vests from Stafford Specsavers.
Be bright, be seen
Youngsters at St Mary’s Wheaton Aston First School & Nursery have received 90 high-vis vests from the store, helping them to stay safe and be seen when out and about on school trips.
‘We’re really proud to be playing our part in helping to keep local children safe when near the roads,’ said Jason Guy, store director at Stafford Specsavers. ‘Even during the brighter days, high-vis vests can be really useful when the children are out on school trips by helping them to remain visible to road users and highlighting the importance of road safety.’
Helen Roberts, a volunteer from the school’s PTA, said: ‘We’re delighted that Specsavers has been able to donate these vests for our pupils and they’re already being put to good use when the children walk to church or are out on educational activities around the village. We rely on the generosity of people within the community to support our fundraising and this donation has enabled PTA funds to be put towards new reading materials for the school.’
Specsavers works with road safety charity, Brake, to inspire communities to take action on road safety and raise awareness of life-saving messages.
