Specsavers Bradley Stoke has ensured that more than 1,000 local children and adults are seen more clearly this winter thanks to donations of high-visibility vests.

The store has so far handed out 1,325 of the vests to a variety of groups including schools, nurseries, Rainbows and Brownies.

'Supporting our local community'

‘We feel very strongly about ensuring our local community can be seen when out and about during the winter months,’ said store director, Ed Stanleigh.

‘Road safety is obviously an important issue all year round, but even more so when there are fewer hours of daylight. We are thrilled to have been able to donate so many vests and hope that they will help give some peace of mind.’

Sara Messenger, Unit Leader of First Alveston Rainbows and First Pilning Rainbows, commented: ‘The vests will come in very handy when we go out on trips and visits, ensuring the girls can be seen clearly.

'They’ll also come in very handy to make sure we can keep an eye on everyone more easily and we’d like to say a big thank you to Specsavers for the donation.’
