The Exmouth store helped local children stay safe at night by donating high visibility vests to local schools.
Safety at night
The store gave the vests to children at Exeter Road Primary School, Marpool Primary School, Littleham CofE Primary School, Brixington Primary School and Bassetts Farm Primary School promoting safety at night ahead of Road Safety Week, an initiative by Brake the charity.
Marpool Primary School Head teacher at Marpool Primary School, Rachael Pattison says: ‘We’re very grateful for these vests; they will be put to good use.
‘The safety of our pupils is one of our top priorities. These vests will allow the children to walk safely in the dark, as well as be visible to cars on outings and school trips.’
Store director Ria Heskins says: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night as winter is fast approaching.
‘Since the clocks have changed and nights have got darker, we hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children to and from school.’
