The team at Specsavers in Keighley recently donated a number of high-visibility vests to keep pupils from two local schools safe when they are out and about.

The store donated the vests to Glusbourn Primary School, Long Lee Primary, Nessfield Primary and St Mary’s Primary School after launching a campaign to increase the safety of local children by making it easier for motorists to spot them when their activities take them into the community, or when they’re out on school trips.

A word from the store director

Raj Gill, store director at Specsavers in Keighley, comments: “At this time of year when the days are quite short, combined with the unpredictable weather, it can be difficult to keep track of a group of children on the move. 

“With this in mind, we wanted to help increase the safety of children in the area and we were thrilled that the schools were happy to be a part of our safety campaign.”  

The store currently has a number of high-visibility vests still available to local community groups and schools, which are free of charge on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to find out more about receiving high-visibility vests, please contact the store directly.
