The Specsavers team in Kendal is supporting Road Safety Week this year by offering high-visibility vests to local schools and groups such as Brownies, Guides and Scouts.
It can be hard for drivers to see pedestrians
At this time of year with the dark mornings and nights, it can be difficult for drivers to see pedestrians. Many children are walking home from school at dusk, a particularly hazardous time.
Specsavers is therefore pledging a commitment to road safety by providing the bright vests, which will improve the safety of children when out and about by making it easier for motorists to spot them.
Contact Specsavers in Kendal to enquire about receiving a vest donation. They are available on a limited basis.
