The team at St Anne's has donated 130 high-visibility vests to keep pupils from a local school safe when they are out and about.

Safety first
The vests were donated to Pear Tree School after Specsavers launched 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.

Edwin Shield, store director at St Anne’s, commented: ‘The weather can be unpredictable in this country and on grey days 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 we were thrilled that Pear Tree School were happy to be a part of our safety campaign.

Raising awareness
Edwin added: ‘As part of the initiative, we are also hoping to raise awareness of free glasses and eye tests that are available to under 16-year-olds. It is important to make sure that children have regular eye tests as an undetected problem could lead to something more severe in the long term.’
