The team at Specsavers in Loughborough is helping to ensure children can be seen clearly this winter by donating high-visibility vests to a local Beaver group.
The store donated 30 high-visibility vests to First Mount Sorrel Beavers as part of a Road Safety Week initiative. The team wanted to do something within the local community to highlight the importance of children being visible on the roads and how our eyes play a huge part in keeping us safe.
Chris Whitehead, store director, said: ‘Hopefully, our vests will help the Beavers stay safe when they are out and about. Making children as visible as possible can help to save lives, especially in the winter when visibility can be extremely poor. We hope the hi-vis vests will help give parents and group leaders peace of mind.’
Specsavers is the co-sponsor of Road Safety Week, the UK’s flagship road safety event, which is organised by road safety charity Brake. It’s an opportunity to help raise awareness about the importance of protecting people on bikes and foot as well as raise funds for a worthwhile cause.
