A CHICHESTER opticians is helping children to stay safe this winter by making a special donation.
A hundred-and-fifty high-visibility vests were donated to Kingsham Primary School by Specsavers, located at 65 East Street.
The opticians hoped to raise awareness of Road Safety Week, which runs from November 23 to 29, an initiative run by Specsavers’ charity partner Brake.
Mohammed Said, store director at Specsavers Chichester, said: “Now that the clocks have changed and the nights are getting darker, we want to ensure that children – and their parents – feel safe when they’re out and about over the next few months.
“By raising awareness during Road Safety Week and by offering the children these vests, we hope that they take extra care on trips and excursions.”
Hi-vis vests are available to collect, free of charge, from Specsavers Chichester, while stocks last.
Brake is a national road safety charity which exists to prevent deaths and injuries which happen on roads on a daily basis, through campaigns and other funding.
