The vests were given out as part of Road Safety Week

Children from schools and local groups have been donated hi-vis vests to raise awareness of Road Safety Week.

Pupils from St Botolph’s CE Primary School and Holy Trinity CE Primary School were among those who received the vests.

The donation was made from local opticians Specsavers, based in Thamesgate Shopping Centre.

Store director Blair Hunter 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.”

Road Safety Week runs from November 23 to 29.
