Specsavers in Belle Vale and Halewood have donated 100 high-visibility vests to keep pupils from a local school safe when they are out and about.
A generous donation
The Specsavers store in Belle Vale donated 100 vests to St. Cecilia’s Catholic Junior School after launching a campaign to increase the safety of local children by making it easier for motorists to spot them when their activities take them into the community, or when they’re out on school trips.
A word from the store director
Mathew Robinson, store director at Specsavers in Belle Vale and Halewood, commented: “The weather can be unpredictable in this country and on grey days it can be difficult to keep track of a group of children on the move.
“With this in mind, we wanted to help increase the safety of children in the area and we were thrilled that St. Cecilia’s were happy to be a part of our safety campaign.
“As part of the initiative, we are also hoping to raise awareness of free glasses and eye tests that are available to under 16-year-olds. It is important to make sure that children have regular eye tests as an undetected problem could lead to something more severe in the long term.”
