Bradford stores donate high-vis vests

04 January, 2018

Specsavers in Girlington and on Bradford Darley Street has helped to fund a local Museums at Night event inspired by local artist David Hockney.

The event, which was one of a series across the UK, saw hundreds of lanterns light up Lister Park, which were decorated in Hockney-esque designs in his trademark blues and yellows.

Donation to local children

The store also donated 100 vests to children taking part in the event.

Live music and fire jugglers also took part, which was held by local group Cecil Green Arts.

The lanterns were created by community groups in Bradford, including local schools, children’s centres and church. 350 were created in total for the community to view.

A word from the store director

Pete Rooke, store director at Specsavers in Girlington and Darley Street, said: ‘We always like to get involved in local events, and with David Hockney originating from Bradford we were more than happy to provide funding.

‘It was a delight to see the lanterns created by the children in the area, and was a great night for all that attended.’
