All pupils at Castledawson Primary School have benefitted from a special donation of high visibility vests courtesy of Magherafelt Specsavers store.

The Specsavers branded vests were worn as staff and pupils took park in a recent charity walk to Polepatrick to raise funds for ADD-NI.

Raising funds for ADD-NI

The ‘Here We Glow Again’ sponsored walk raised funds for ADD-NI, a support network for children, young people and families of those affected by AD/HD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder).

Specsavers each year champions road safety and provides hi vis vests to local primary schools and community groups.

Helping children stay safe on the roads

Brian O’Kane, store director and optometrist at Magherafelt Specsavers said, ‘Our staff team were delighted to help Castledawson PS by providing the vests for this charity walk and for other school trips and events. It’s all part of Specsavers commitment to helping children stay safe on our roads.

‘I’d also like to congratulate the pupils and teachers on generating much needed funds for a very important local charity.’
