Children from a number of schools and community groups in Kettering will be seen more clearly this winter, thanks to a donation of high-visibility vests from the Specsavers team in Kettering.

The store has donated 100 vests to both St. Mary’s Church of England School and Brambleside Primary School, as part of an initiative to make the roads safer for children in the winter months. A further 100 vests have been split between the Kettering Salvation Army Rainbows and the 31st Kettering Rainbows St. Edward’s.

Mark Turner, store director, said: ‘We are delighted to provide high-vis vests to both St. Mary’s and Brambleside schools, and hope that parents will have more peace of mind when their children are walking near roads. The days are now shorter, so it’s really important that we ensure children can be seen easily travelling to and from activities.’

Specsavers is the co-sponsor of Road Safety Week (23 – 29 November 2015), which is organised by the charity Brake. Visit for more information.
