Specsavers in Cirencester is championing road safety in the local community by donating 50 high-visibility vests to the 1st Cirencester Scouts.

Specsavers on Cricklade Street donated the vests to the beavers group (aged six to eight years) to help ensure the youngsters will be seen when out and about during the darker months of this year.

A word from the store director

‘We are committed to helping local children stay safer on the streets,’ said Specsavers Cirencester store director, Kelly-Anne Nelson. ‘Anything that helps educate young people about road safety or to make them more visible, especially to drivers, is invaluable.

‘It’s great that we’ve been able to support the scouts group,’ continued Kelly-Anne. ‘As Scouts often take part in outdoor activities, we hope the high visibility vests will provide some peace of mind for parents and those who look after them.’

The 1st Cirencester Scouts will use the vests when out and about with the beavers, cubs, scouts and leaders during various activities throughout the year.
