Staff from Specsavers in Gravesend have donated high-visibility vests and rain ponchos to Ilfield School in Gravesend.

The donation is part of the store’s ongoing commitment to help local children stay safer on the streets by making sure they are clearly visible to motorists.

Blair Hunter, store director in Gravesend, said: ‘We were delighted to be able to donate the high-vis vests to Ilfield School. We hope they will find them really useful.

‘Being seen in the evenings really matters, but making sure you can see others clearly is important too. So if you have not had an eye test in a while, it could be time to get one.’
