The Gorseinon team has donated 200 high-visibility vests to a local Brownies group to help keep children safe in the dark.

A useful donation

The Specsavers staff donated the vests to the 3rd Loughor Brownies, children aged seven to 11, who will share them with the 1st Llwchwr Guides, aged 10 to 14, to ensure they are always visible when participating in outdoor activities and walks.

Amanda Hobbs at the 3rd Loughor Brownies, says: ‘These vests will really come in handy for the outside activities that we often take part in as a group. They have already been used during our local lantern parade and will continue to keep the children safe during our walks.’

Community commitment

The 3rd Loughor Brownies will share the vests with as many local children as possible and has offered to lend them to other local Brownies, Guides and Scouts groups.

Elizabeth Berrell, store manager at Specsavers Gorseinon, adds: ‘We are committed to our community, especially keeping children as safe as possible while they’re out and about. Obviously, being seen in the dark is important so we’re delighted so many children in our community will have access to these vests.’
