Children in Chard are set to stay safe thanks to the local Specsavers store who have donated high visibility vests to the local Brownie group. 

The store gave the group the vests to promote safety when walking near the roads and at night. The donations took place ahead of Road Safety Week, an initiative by the charity Brake.

Store director Stephen Watson said: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night. We hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children in the dark.’
