Specsavers in Belle Vale is joining other Specsavers stores across the UK to support Road Safety Week - by providing thousands of high-visibility vests to hundreds of local schools and groups such as Brownies, Guides and Scouts.
At this time of year with the dark mornings and nights, combined with increasingly wintry weather, it can be difficult for motorists to see pedestrians. Many children are walking home from school at dusk, which is a particularly hazardous time.
The Bootle store joins a national initiave by Specsavers around road safety, pledging its commitment to road safety by providing high-visibility vests, which will improve the safety of children when out and about by making it easier for motorists to spot them.
Selected Specsavers stores across the region still have high-visibility vests available to donate. Contact your local Specsavers store to enquire about the vests.
