The Connswater Specsavers team has donated 120 high visibility vests to help young children in East Belfast be seen better on our roads. The giveaway marked Specsavers’ sponsorship of Road Safety Week and aimed to highlight the importance of being visible to motorists and to keep young people safe.
Local schools receive high vis vests
Greenwood Primary School, Victoria Park Primary School, St Joseph’s Primary School and Orangefield Primary School each received a set of 30 vests for use by their pupils.
Important to be visible
Specsavers store director, Paula Cunningham, says, ‘To be safe as a road user and as a pedestrian you have to be seen and this applies especially to children as they make their way to and from school. It is particularly important that all pedestrians take precautions and wear high visibility clothing when out and about in the dark. Our optical assistant Stacey Wallace was delighted to visit each of the schools to deliver the vests and we hope they will be used over and over again.’
