Wellingborough Specsavers did its bit for National Road Safety Week (17-23 November) by donating high-visibility vests to a local school and Rainbows club. 

Specsavers donated 150 vests to Redwell Primary School. Members of the team from the store attended a special assembly to speak on the importance of eye health. 

Staff also visited the local Rainbows group to hand over the bright vests and talk to them about safety when out and about during the dark evenings. 

David Williams, store director at Specsavers in Wellingborough, said: ‘It’s great to take part in this initiative as it’s more important than ever to think of the safety of children with the dark mornings and nights drawing in.’

This activity forms part of Specsavers’ support, as a co-sponsor, of Road Safety Week (17-23 November).  Specsavers stores across the country are also 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.
