Specsavers Audiologists in Hampshire have come together to donate hi-vis jackets to help local schoolchildren and teachers stay safe during outdoor activities.
The businesses in Bitterne, Romsey, Shirley, Southampton and Totton have presented Little Gardners Nursery in Marchwood with 80 child-sized and 10 adult-sized jackets to help ensure pupils and staff remain visible to motorists while out on trips.
Stay seen, stay safe
Dr Alison Vaughan, hearing partner at the five Specsavers stores, visited the nursery to personally deliver the jackets.
Alison said: ‘We chose Little Gardners as one of my audiologists’ children goes there and they are a great nursery who regularly take children out to the park and for walks around the village. We were delighted to donate the jackets and help ensure the children stay safe while they’re out and about.’
Claire Joyce, director at Little Gardners Nursery, said: ‘Little Gardners Nursery are pleased to be offered the opportunity by Specsavers to be part of their hi-vis jacket giveaway programme. Our team members and children value wearing the jackets to go on their walks and to be safely seen by traffic.
'Going out for walks into the community is vital for our children’s learning and development and the hi-vis jackets are a vital part in ensuring our children are safe at all times.’
