Optician takes message of eye health to schools
Staff at Specsavers on Queen Street have visited 11 schools in 2015 as part of a year-long campaign to promote the importance of eye health and road safety to children in Cardiff.
Being seen in Cardiff
Specsavers’ Nicola Edwards and Justine Davies visited the 11 schools, which culminated in a visit to Holy Family RC Primary School in Fairwater.
During the visit to Holy Family RC Primary School, Nicola and Justine talked to an assembly of nearly 100 children about eye health, providing tips on how to protect your eyes and keep them healthy.
Other Cardiff schools that the Specsavers staff have visited are Severn Primary School, St Mellon's Primary School, Gwaelod y Gareth Primary School, Rhydypennau School, St. John Lloyd School, Ysgol Pencae, Coed Glas, Thornhill Primary School, Whitchurch Primary School and Bishop's Child Primary School.
Prioritise eye health
James Deavall, store director of Specsavers in Cardiff, said: ‘At Specsavers we know how important it is to make your eye health a priority, whatever your age. We want to make sure our community and customers are aware of this from a young age, and that’s why our outreach work to local schools is very important to us. ‘It was great to meet so many school children this year and we hope to visit many more in the coming year.’
