The Arbroath opticians has donated 340 high visibility vests to Timmergreens Primary School and Ladyloan Primary School.

Committed to highlighting road safety

The donation is part of the store’s ongoing commitment to help local children stay safer on Arbroath’s streets by being clearly visible to motorists.

The vests will be used by pupils who use the ‘walking bus’ service which is available at both schools.

Hazardous winter conditions

Store director at Specsavers in Arbroath, Jamie Buchan, says: ‘We’re very pleased to have been able to supply the two local schools with vests.

‘At this time of year, with the dark mornings and nights, combined with the winter weather, it can be difficult for motorists to see pedestrians, and dusk is particularly hazardous when children are walking home from school.’
