Specsavers in Normanton are helping to ensure local children can be seen clearly this winter by donating high-visibility vests to Pear Tree Infants School. 

Store director Paresh Gohil visited the school to distribute 100 vests to children at Pear Tree Infants School to coincide with Road Safety Week (17 - 23 November).

‘With the dark mornings and the nights drawing in, now really is the time to think about children’s safety,’ Paresh says. ‘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 (17-23 November). 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. 

Road Safety Week is organised by Brake, the national road safety charity which helps to save lives and support people bereaved by road crashes.
