Children in Brownhills will be more visible when they are out and about, thanks to their local Specsavers.
The store, on the high street, has donated a total of 100 high visibility vests to Beaudesert 1st Rainbows, 24th Sutton Coldfield Brownies and Rainbows, 5th Brownhills Guides and St Michael’s Junior Mixed and Infant school to help make sure the children are seen during the long winter nights.
A word from the store director
Justine Page, store director at Specsavers Brownhills said: ‘These vests will help make sure local children are visible and we’re pleased we’ve been able to donate to so many groups. Hopefully they will help provide some peace of mind.’
The activity follows on from Road Safety Week (18 – 24 November) which saw Specsavers team up with road safety charity, Brake.
Joshua Harris, Director of Campaigns from Brake, said: ‘Every 20 minutes, someone on a British road is killed or seriously injured. We were delighted to partner with Specsavers as good eyesight is so important for road safety, whatever mode of transport you use to get around.’
