Lanark donates high visibility vests to local primary school
The Lanark opticians is helping to keep local children safer by donating high visibility vests to Biggar Primary School.
The 300 vests from Specsavers in Lanark will be used to ensure the school pupils are easy to spot during trips.
Committment to promoting road safety
The donation is part of the store’s ongoing commitment to help local children stay safer on the streets by being clearly visible to motorists.
Store director Rubena Kerr said: ‘We’re very pleased to have been able to supply Biggar Primary School with vests. We will also be visiting New Lanark Primary School and Carstairs Primary School to donate vests when the next term begins.
‘After we donated the vests, we were invited back to attend the school assembly to talk to pupils about the importance of regular eye checks.
‘We handed out packs which included magazines, colouring in books and guides containing top tips on maintaining good eye health.’
Mrs Heather Graham, head teacher at Biggar Primary School, said: ‘We’d like to thank Specsavers in Lanark for kindly donating the high visibility vests and delivering a very informative presentation to our children to help them learn about the importance of looking after your eyes.’
