Children at a local pre-school have had a safer winter while out and about, thanks to a donation of high-visibility jackets from the Specsavers store in Longton.
Visibility and safety
Members of the team visited Fulford Pre-School to hand over the jackets, to ensure that the children were more likely to be seen in the darker months while going to and from the nursery, as well as on excursions. The nursery in turn presented the store with a thank you gift; a picture featuring the children and vests in action.
The pre-school manager, Angela Alcock, heard about the scheme from her son, Jack Alcock, who is an optical assistant at the store.
Tracey Britton, store director, said: ‘We’re delighted to give these vests to children in the local area, as they really make a difference when they are out and about near roads. It’s fantastic that we were able to help out a community group with links to the store.’
Specsavers supports road safety charity, Brake, to inspire communities to take action on road safety and raise awareness of life-saving messages.
