Specsavers donates hi-vis vests to 8th Trowbridge Brownies and Rainbows

 

Specsavers in Trowbridge is helping children to be seen more clearly this winter by donating high-visibility vests to the 8th Trowbridge Brownies and Rainbows.

Staff welcomed 11 youngsters into the store to recieve their hi-vis vests, which will help them to be seen more clearly when out and about. The donation coincided with Road Safety Week (17-23 Nov), with this year’s theme being ‘look out for each other.’ 

‘We’re really happy to donate the hi-vis vest to the 8th Trowbridge Brownies and Rainbows,’ said Stephen Auty, store director. ‘By giving out hi-vis vests, we are helping local people put safety first this winter by spreading the message of this year’s Road Safety Week.

‘As the safety of children in the town is very important, every child who visits us for an eye examination before the end of the year will also recieve a hi-vis vest.’*

As the nights begin to draw in, it’s even more crucial that local children can be seen when out and about, so the store is giving any child aged ten or under who has a sight test between now and the end of the year a free hi-visibility vest*.

As part of Specsavers’ Two Free Pairs promotion, children up to the age of 16 qualify for one free pair of specs from the NHS and a second pair from Specsavers free of charge. Kids specs also come with free ‘SuperTough’ Trivex lenses.
