Four local primary school pupils in the Newtownabbey area are ready for darker winter days and evenings with a donation of visibility vests provided by Specsavers in Abbeycentre.

Vests are being provided to Park Lodge, St Bernards, St Mary’s and St Macnissi’s primary schools.

Championing road safety

Each year Specsavers champions road safety and provides hi-vis vests to local primary schools and community groups.

Store director at Specsavers Abbeycentre, Siobhan McGoldrick said: ‘At a time when school budgets are under pressure, we are delighted to help local schools by providing vests which can be worn when travelling to and from school or during school trips and events.

'It’s all part of Specsavers commitment to helping children stay safe on our roads.’
