Members of staff from Specsavers Uttoxeter are championing road safety in the community by donating high visibility vests to Home Education Uttoxeter (HEX).
The store has provided HEX members with 50 high visibility vests to ensure that the group’s members stay safe when out and about in the area, whether that be attending local events or meeting with friends.
Safety is key
‘We want all children to be safe and seen,’ said Specsavers Uttoxeter store director, Mark Orgill. ‘While local schools may offer their own guidance on road safety we wanted to ensure that home educators within the region also have access to resources. Anything that helps educate young people about road safety and to make them more visible, especially to drivers, is invaluable.’
HEX is a support group for home educators in the Uttoxeter and surrounding areas. It provides help and information, details about local events and an opportunity to make friends in the area.
