Opticians helps children stay safe this winter
Specsavers in Halesowen will be helping children to stay safe this winter as they donate 200 high-visibility vests to a local primary school.
As part of Road Safety Week (17-23 November), staff from Specsavers in the Cornbow Shopping Centre will hand over the vests to pupils at Tenterfields Primary School. The school children will make use of the vests when walking to and from school as well as on school trips, helping them to stay safe when out and about.
‘Now that the evenings are getting darker, it’s really important that we help children stay safe on the roads,’ said Shahid Parvez, store director. ‘Hopefully, by donating these hi-vis vests, we’ll be able to give parents and teachers some peace of mind.’
Mrs Rhian Welsh, Acting Head Teacher at Tenterfields Primary said: ‘Tenterfields Primary is deeply grateful for the support and contribution of the high-visibility jackets from Specsavers to the school, helping us prioritise the safety of our children.’
Sponsored by Specsavers, Road Safety Week is organised each year by Brake. Working to make roads and communities safer, the charity was established in 1997 to raise awareness of road safety and prevent deaths and injuries throughout the year.
