Sudbury Specsavers has helped children to stay safe by making a special donation to two local youth groups.
Scouting for safety
The staff donated high-visibility vests to children at 1st Coggeshall Cub Scouts and Yorley Barn Nursery School. The high-visibility vests were gifted to the local clubs to raise awareness of the importance of road safety.
However, the safety training went even further when the Cub Scouts were able to show off their new hi-vis vests at a local fire station visit.
Yorley Barn was particularly important to the team as Geraldine Clifford, store manager, takes her three year old son Lewis to the nursery, and was thrilled to give other parents safety in the knowledge their children will be free from the dangers of the road.
A word from the store
Store director, Lynette Copeland, says: ‘We want to ensure that children – and their parents – feel safe when they’re out and about on the roads.
‘It’s especially important for little ones to be seen and by raising road safety awareness and offering the children these vests, we hope that they take extra care on trips and excursions.’
