As part of Road Safety Week, Specsavers in Royton is helping to ensure children are ‘seen and safe’ this winter by donating high visibility vests to a local primary school.
As part of an initiative by Specsavers and charity partner Brake to increase the safety of Royton youngsters, Royton Hall Primary School pupils have been presented with 75 vests.
All the youngsters also took part in a whole school assembly to ensure that they understand how to stay safe when their learning takes them out into the community as well as when walking to and from school or on school trips.
Specsavers manager Becky Inman said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to donate these vests to Royton Hall Primary School and we were very impressed to find that pupils were already well-versed on their road safety.
‘Now that the clocks have gone back, we’re determined to ensure local children are ‘seen and safe’ on dark nights. We hope these bright easily seen vests will help spread the message of the importance of protecting kids, families and everyone else on roads this autumn and winter.
