The Greenock opticians has donated 75 high visibility vests to pupils at St Andrew’s Primary School.

Pledging to help keep youngsters safe

The donation was part of Specsavers’ pledge to help youngsters stay safe when out on darker afternoons and evenings.

Alan Connick, head teacher at St Andrews Primary School, said: ‘The high visibility vest donation from Specsavers will be very beneficial in helping our staff ensure pupils are visible on Greenock’s streets, especially in winter.

‘It was a pleasure to welcome store director Jonathan Dry to the school to present the vests to our children.’

An important focus

Jonathan said: ‘Helping local children be safe and be seen is an important focus for our store. We were delighted to donate the vests to St Andrews Primary School.

‘St Andrews is the latest of several schools in the area we’ve had the opportunity to supply vests to and help spread the road safety message.’ Last year vests were donated to Kilmacolm Primary School and Inverkip Primary School.
