Safety campaign at Richmond opticians
Richmond eyecare experts are looking out for kids in the borough by promoting good winter visibility.
The team from Specsavers in The Quadrant has donated a supply of high visibility vests to Parkcycle Richmond Park to help promote safe cycling in the area.
Children visiting the store will also be gifted their own high visibility vest as part of the initiative.
A word from the store director
Lee Penfold, store director at Specsavers in Richmond, said: ‘Now that the nights are drawing in, we want to make sure that our young people can enjoy their outdoor pursuits in safety.
‘Whether cycling in the park or walking to school, a simple high visibility vest increases the likelihood of them being spotted by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians in poor lighting conditions.’
‘Why not pop into store and get your little ones kitted out for winter.’
