The safety of children couldn’t be more important to a cluster of opticians in Bristol as staff donate thousands of high-visibility vests to local children as part of Road Safety Week (17-23 November).

Ten Specsavers stores are supporting national charity Brake in its annual road safety awareness week by donating 2,000 high vis vests to children all over Bristol. Schools, children’s groups and visitors have been receiving donations from stores in Bedminster, Bradley Stoke, Broadmead, Clifton, Cribbs Causeway, Filton, Fishponds, Keynsham, Kingswood and Knowle.

During winter, with the dark nights and mornings, visibility can be limited, and with this year’s theme of looking out for each other, which includes making sure children can be seen more clearly, the Bristol stores wanted to show their support and help spread Brake’s message locally.

Specsavers is the co-sponsor of Road Safety Week, the UK’s flagship road safety event, which is organised by the charity Brake. It’s an opportunity to help raise awareness about the importance of protecting people on bikes and foot as well as raise funds for a worthwhile cause.

The stores are located at; Unit 9 Imperial Arcade, Bedminster; Willow Brook Centre, Bradley Stoke; Broadmead, City Centre; Clifton Down Shopping Centre, Clifton; The Mall, Cribbs Causeway; 5 Church View, Filton; 767 Fishponds Road, Fishponds; 12 Temple Street, Keynsham; Kings Chase Shopping Centre, Kingswood and 17 Broadwalk, Knowle.
