A word from the store director
Tony Martin, store director at Specsavers in Waltham Cross, said: ‘Now that the nights are drawing in, we want to make sure that our young people are travelling to and from school and after-school clubs in safety.
‘A simple high visibility vest increases the likelihood of them being spotted by motorists and cyclists in poor lighting conditions. The Little Cherubs are wonderful ambassadors of this campaign and are already sporting their vests with pride.’
‘Why not pop into store and get your little ones kitted out for winter.’
