'Thank you to Specsavers, we look forward to wearing the vests when we work on these badges in the New Year.’

Peter Taylor, store director at Specsavers Elgin, said: ‘Forres Beavers and Brownies often take part in activities outside so we hope they’ll be able to make good use of their new vests for badge work.

‘We continually look for ways to give back to the local community and this donation is a fantastic way to support local groups in the area and help spread the road safety message.’
