Local pupils win hi-vis vests
Local primary school pupils Calvin Mallon and Sarah Wilson from Donaghcloney and Edenderry primary schools won hi-visibility vests for their respective classes as well as family cinema passes courtesy of Specsavers in Banbridge.
The store held a colouring competition during the half term holiday break and provided prizes in two age categories, nursery to P3 and Primary 4 to Primary 7.
Runners-up, Adam Gwyn and Jessica McCullough from Edenderry and Ballydown primary schools also won hi vis vests for their school class and a book and set of colouring pencils.
Championing road safety
Wayne Watson, ophthalmic director at Specsavers Banbridge said: ‘Each year Specsavers champions road safety and specifically in the run up to Road Safety Week, by giving local schools and community groups the opportunity to access high visibility vests.
'We decided to run a colouring competition for local schools and were delighted with the high quality level of entries.
‘Through this competition we’re pleased to be able to provide local schools with vests which can be worn by pupils during school trips and events and travelling to and from school. It’s all part of Specsavers commitment to helping children stay safe on our roads.’
