Worcester Specsavers is donating high-visibility vests to five local schools as part of their continued support of Road Safety Week (17 – 23 November)

Back to school

Specsavers in Worcester is handing out 60 bright vests each to the five following local schools; Kempsey Primary, Whittington Church of England Primary, St. Barnabas, St.Georges and Powick Primary. From Monday 15 December - Wednesday 17 December, the Specsavers team will be attending assemblies at some of the schools, speaking to the pupils about eye health and the importance of being seen when walking to and from school.

Five is the magic number!

This activity forms part of a challenge where staff at the store has committed to supporting five local schools, helping five nursing homes such as The Shrubbery and Regent Residential Care Home, and undertaking five personal challenges before the end of 2014. Personal challenges include a five mile swimming challenge and 55.5 mile bike ride.

Alan Richards, store director at Specsavers in Worcester, said: ‘We’re thrilled to help schools in our local area, especially on an important issue such as children’s safety. We hope the schools make good use of the vests and it gives parents and teachers a piece 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.
