Specsavers Galashiels is helping to keep local children safer by donating high visibility vests to Drumlanrig St Cuthbert's Primary School.

Staying safe

The 305 vests will be used by the pupils to remain safe when learning in the community and beyond. The donation is part of the store’s ongoing commitment to help local children stay safer on the streets by being clearly visible to motorists.

Giving back to the community

Stuart Forrester, store director at Specsavers Galashiels, said: ‘We’re very happy to have been able to supply Drumlanrig St Cuthbert's Primary School with vests.

‘Helping to increase the safety of local children is so important and we are continually looking for ways to give back to the local community so we’re pleased that we have been able to help benefit the pupils.’

Caroline Fairbairn, Depute Headteacher at Drumlanrig St Cuthbert's Primary School, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to Specsavers for this very generous donation. The Junior Road Safety Officers and pupils of Drumlanrig are delighted with their new hi-vis vests.’
