St. Piran’s playschool have road safety firmly in their sights following a donation of high-visibility vests from Specsavers Bodmin.

Store manager Steve McLean joined staff members Victoria McLean and Grace Denford to deliver the vests and talk to the children about the importance of staying safe on the roads.

What is Road Safety Week?

Specsavers Bodmin donated the vests as part of Road Safety Week, the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake, the road safety charity.

The week aims to inspire thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life saving measures.

The year’s theme for Road Safety Week was Speed Down Save Lives, focusing on the dangers of driving too fast.

The campaign also promotes the importance of 20mph speed limit in built up areas.

A word from the store director

Jo McLean, Specsavers Bodmin store director, said: ‘We are keen to support the local community in any way we can. What better way to highlight road safety than ensuring local children and teachers are safe when they’re out and about than with high visibility vests.’
