An opticians in Sutton in Ashfield has helped ensure children can be seen clearly this winter by donating high-visibility vests to a local school. 

Specsavers in the Idlewells Shopping Centre donated the bright vests to Croft Primary School when they attended the school’s assembly on Thursday 20 November. Sam Best, assistant director at the Sutton in Ashfield store, went along to the school and spoke about eye health to the youngsters. This activity forms part of Specsavers’ support, as a co-sponsor, of Road Safety Week (17-23 November).  

Nigel Davidson, store director at Specsavers in Sutton in Ashfield, said: ‘It’s great to get behind this initiative with the dark mornings and nights drawing in, now really is the time to think about the safety of children. We hope that it will give parents and teachers peace of mind.’

Specsavers stores across the country are donating high-visibility vests to local schools as part of an initiative to keep local school children safe when out and about this winter. 

Road Safety Week is organised by Brake, the national road safety charity which helps to save lives and support people bereaved by road crashes.
