Taunton opticians has vested interest
The Taunton Specsavers store has donated high visibility vests to local pupils.
Road Safety Week
Blackbrook Community Primary School and Staple Grove brownies received the vests ahead of Road Safety Week, an initiative by the Charity Brake.
Children are safe
Store director Emma Denham says: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night as winter is fast approaching.
‘Since the clocks have changed and nights have got darker, we hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children to and from school.’
