Stourbridge Specsavers is appealing to local schools and nurseries to enter a draw where they could win a bundle of high-visibility vests for their pupils.

As part of an initiative to keep children safe in the darker months, Specsavers, at 71 High Street, is looking to give away 300 hi-vis vests, helping to keep children safe when out and about this winter. 

Schools and nurseries are asked to register their interest with the store by Thursday 19 November, with three entrants being randomly selected to receive up to 100 hi-vis vests in time for Road Safety Week (23-29 November).

‘Now that the clocks have gone back and the nights are getting even darker, it’s important we do everything we can to help keep children safe as they make their way to and from school,’ said Jason Bridgewater, store director. ‘These vests will make children easily visible to drivers and, as a lot of children’s learning takes place outside the classroom, I’m sure they’ll also come in useful on school trips.’

Specsavers is a co-sponsor of Road Safety Week, an annual event organised by Brake which aims to inspire communities to take action on road safety and raise awareness of life-saving messages.
