A local Girl Guide group will be safer on their trips thanks to a local opticians
Specsavers, located at 7 Rose Lane, has made a donation of hi-visibility vests to the Canterbury Girl Guides. Members of the group visited the store last week and each received a fluorescent vest which will help them be clearly seen when on group outings.
Store director, Richard Leach said: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night. The clocks have changed and nights have got darker, so we hope our donation will help put parents’ minds at ease when their children go on outings.’
Specsavers has campaigned throughout the past decade to highlight the link between vision and road safety. In addition to its work donating high-visibility vests to schools across the country, Specsavers has toured motor and country shows nationwide, screening drivers’ vision in its Drive Safe campaign trailer.
