Leatherhead opticians gears up for Road Safety Week
Specsavers in Leatherhead is helping children stay safe at night by giving away high visibility vests to local children.
Road Safety Week
The optical experts have 200 vests to hand out to children who come in store for an eye examination during Road Safety Week on 17-23 November, an initiative by the charity Brake and sponsored by Specsavers.
Being safe and visible at night
Glen MacGregor, store director at Specsavers in Leatherhead, said: ‘We want 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 to and from school.’
