The Broughton kindly donated high visibility vests to a local primary school to help them stay safe and seen when crossing roads this winter.

The team handed the vests to children during a visit to Abermorddu Community Primary School to ensure that drivers can clearly spot them as evenings begin to get darker.

Keep our children safe

Head teacher Ian Roberts and deputy head Claire Berry turned to the Broughton team to help them out, as recent construction has caused drivers to travel faster along the roads nearby the school.

Store director Kelly Gibson said ‘As the dark and winter conditions set in, it’s more important than ever to make sure our kids are easy to spot.

‘When Ian and Claire got in touch with us about the possible risk nearby traffic could pose to their pupils, we felt it a priority to provide a way to let the children leave as safely as possible.

‘We hope these bright, easily seen vests will help spread the message of the importance of protecting kids, families and everyone this winter.’

PTA praise

Chair of the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Charlene Fowles was also very grateful for donation from the store.

‘We are extremely thankful for the support we’ve received from Specsavers Broughton. The safety of our children is paramount and as parents, we are particularly concerned with the parking and traffic changes outside the school. Anything that can help to protect and safeguard our children is greatly appreciated’
