Selby Specsavers has donated a set of high-vis vests to local children’s charity BeeAble, to improve visibility and keep children under their care safe on darker nights.
Donation to local children
The Specsavers store on Gowthorpe has donated the vests to the organisation after launching a campaign to increase the safety of local children by making it easier for motorists to spot them when their activities take them into the community, or when they’re out on school trips.
BeeAble provides care for children from 5 to 18 years of age with a range of physical, mental and behavioural needs, providing them with a safe and secure environment to socialise in, while helping them to build confidence and independence.
Increasing the safety of children
Andy Nunwick, store director at Specsavers in Selby, said: ‘At this time of year when the days are quite short, combined with the unpredictable weather, it can be difficult to keep track of a group of children on the move.
‘With this in mind, we wanted to help increase the safety of children in the area and who better to receive these vests than BeeAble, a charity that does amazing work for children and parents in our local community and who we’ve supported since the start of the year.’
