Local business provides hi-viz vests for schools

Children with hi viz vestsIn Brixton 150 high visibility vests were given to pupils at Sudbourne Primary, St Judes and Jubilee Primary by the local Specsavers store. The store teamed up with road safety charity Brake as part of Road Safety Week to make sure children are seen as the days get darker.

Fred Agyarko, store director Specsavers Brixton, says: “We’re proud to be teaming up with Brake to try and make our roads safer. With the days getting darker, these vests will help make sure children are visible when they are out on the roads. After Road Safety Week we also want to encourage drivers to “step up for safe streets” by having regular eye tests to make sure their eyesight is as good as it can be.”

Mrs Bayford from St Judes thanked Specsavers “for the very generous donation of 50 jackets for the reception children.”

Joshua Harris, from Brake, says: “School children are some of our most vulnerable road users and so it’s fantastic to see Specsavers partnering with local schools in light of Road Safety Week”.
