Specsavers opticians in Truro have helped Cub Scouts stay safe at night by donating high visibility vests to a local group.

The store have given the vests to the local Roseland Scout group to promote safety at night.

Night hikes and outdoor adventures

Team leader at the Roseland Scout group, Sally Bartlett said: ‘We really loved receiving the vests and know that they will be put to excellent use during our night hikes and outdoor adventures.’

Store director Graham Dunn added: ‘We wanted to make sure that children are safe and visible at night as winter is fast approaching.

‘Since the clocks have changed and nights have got darker, we hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children about.’


Brake is a national road safety charity which exists to prevent deaths and injuries which happen on roads on a daily basis, through campaigns and other funding. The charity also promotes safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies.
