To help keep children safe and seen this winter, the Specsavers team in Welshpool has donated high-visibility vests to organisations across Powys.
Store directors, David Dunlop and Lowri Evans donated 112 vests to schools and organisations across the county to help ensure members of its young community are visible to all road users this winter.
Children at Glantwymyn Primary School, Machynlleth Community Nursery, Guisfield Primary School and the Arddleen Brownies benefited from the donation. A dangerous time of year The youngsters, aged between two to 12 years old, will be using the vests during sponsored walks and while out and about during the winter evenings.
‘Winter is a time of fun and festivities for children, but it can also be dangerous for all road users as poor weather impacts visibility,’ says Lowri Evans, store director at Specsavers Welshpool.
‘The high-visibility vests should mean the children are seen when they are out and about.’
