Windsor Brownies are embracing their creativity by decorating high visibility vests for Road Safety Week, thanks to local opticians.

Highlighting the importance of road safety

Specsavers in Windsor donated 30 vests to Windsor First Brownies to promote Road Safety Week, an initiative by a road safety charity Brake.

Raman Dosanjh, retail supervisor at Specsavers Windsor, also tasked the Brownies with decorating their own vests to highlight the importance of staying safe on the roads, as well as giving away free vests to children in store during Road Safety Week.

Thanking Specsavers Windsor

Brown Owl, Anna Clayton, said: 'We are extremely grateful to Specsavers for donating the high-visibility vests to us.

'Keeping our Brownies safe when out and about during excursions is a top priority and these vests will ensure that they are visible to drivers during the dark winter months.

'By decorating the vests the girls can not only learn how to stay safe on the roads, but also earn a Road Safety badge to add to their sashes.'

A word from the director

Seema Patel, clinical director at Specsavers in Windsor, said: 'We want to help keep children as safe on the roads as possible, especially as the nights grow darker.

'By donating these vests to the Brownies, we hope to encourage them to think about road safety and the importance of our sight when out and about. '

We look forward to seeing what colourful creations the girls come up with.'
