Specsavers in Arbroath has pledged to help youngsters stay safer on darker afternoons and evenings by donating high-visibility vests.

Appeal to local community

Specsavers in Arbroath is appealing to local groups which could benefit from a donation to get in touch.

Jamie Buchan, store director at Specsavers in Arbroath, said: ‘At this time of year, it can be very difficult for drivers to see pedestrians, and dusk is a particularly hazardous time as many youngsters may be walking home from school.

‘The vests are a great way to help children be visible and also come in handy during trips, helping to ensure they are easily identifiable as part of a group.

‘Whether you are a teacher, a Brownies or Scouts leader or even an after-school club organiser, we’d love to hear from you.’

Get in touch

Requests will be treated on a first-come-first-served basis, if you would like to enquire about a donation please pop in store.
