Specsavers in Margate has championed road safety in the community by donating high visibility vests to a local scouts group.

Youngsters from the Westgate Scout Group were presented with the vests by the store with the aim of helping the children stay safe when they are out and about, walking to and from the club or on other trips.

The donation is part of the store’s ongoing commitment to help local children stay safer on the streets.

A word from the store director

David Bryant, store director at Specsavers in Margate, said: ‘We’re delighted to give these vests to children in the local area, as they really make a difference when they are out and about near roads.’
