Pupils are now easier to spot walking to and from school thanks to a high-vis vest donation from a town centre opticians.

Brookside School, St Edburg’s Primary School and Southwold School have each received 100 vests from Specsavers in Bicester.

Charlee White, a dispenser at the Sheep Street store, delivered the 300 vests to the schools so youngsters can now stand out to drivers on the roads.

Sarah Marshall, store director, said: “It’s great that we’re able to help young children be seen on the streets when walking to and from school.

“With the dark mornings and the nights drawing in, now really is the time to think about children’s safety and we hope it will give parents and teachers peace of mind.”

Specsavers is a co-sponsor of Road Safety Week which is organised by Brake, the national road safety charity.
