Specsavers Dagenham has found a great way to give something back to the local community this winter.
The store, in the Heathway Shopping Centre, is giving away high visibility vests to customers, both children and adults, to help them be seem on local roads in the dark.
The vests can be worn by pedestrians and cyclists and are designed to help prevent accidents.
Staying safe in winter
Gurjit Singh Sehmi, store director in Dagenham, said: ‘Road safety really matters all year round, but at this time of year it can be hard for pedestrians and cyclists to be seen by cars – and each other.
‘That is why we wanted to do something to keep local people a bit safer this winter. We hope our customers find the vests really useful.’
