Specsavers in Rugeley focuses on children’s safety this winter

18 December, 2014

Specsavers in Rugeley is helping to ensure children can be seen clearly this winter by donating high-visibility vests to three local schools. 

Kirsty Guest, optical assistant at the store, visited the Etching Hill, St Joseph’s and Chase View Primary Schools on Friday 14 November ahead of Road Safety Week (17 - 23 November).

‘Road Safety Week is a great time to let children know about the importance of being visible on the roads and when out and about,’ said Minal Naik, store director.

‘With the dark mornings and the nights drawing in, now really is the time to think about children’s safety. It’s great that we’re able to help young children be seen on the streets when walking to and from school. We hope that it will give parents and teachers peace of mind.’

Specsavers is a co-sponsor of Road Safety Week, the UK’s flagship road safety event organised by Brake. Specsavers stores across the country are also donating high-visibility vests to local schools and other community groups as part of an initiative to keep local school children safe when out and about this winter. www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk
