Specsavers recently donated a number of high-visibility vests to keep local primary schools safe when they are out and about.

The Specsavers store in Northallerton donated vests to the Bumble Bee class at Applegarth County Primary School, after launching a campaign to increase the safety of local children. The campaign aims to make it easier for motorists to spot children when their activities take them into the community, or when they’re out on school trips.

A word from the store director

Ruth Sinclair, Store Director at Specsavers in Northallerton, comments: ‘It can be difficult for teachers to keep track of a group of children when out on school trips and navigating busy roads’.

‘With this in mind, we wanted to help increase the safety of children in the area and we were thrilled that the Bumble Bees class at Applegarth County Primary School were happy to be a part of our safety campaign.’
