A Lynn optician has helped children stay safe on the roads by donating high visibility vests to local Brownies and Guide groups.

Specsavers, located in Norfolk Street, gave more than 200 vests to local groups to promote safety at night ahead of Road Safety Week, an initiative by the charity Brake.

Specsavers store director, Mark Willis says: ‘We want to make sure that children are safe and visible at night as winter is fast approaching. A number of Girl Guide and Brownie meetings take place after school, so what perfect time to make sure they are seen to and from their weekly sessions.

‘Since the clocks have changed and nights have got darker, we hope our donation will help keep parents’ minds at ease when they’re escorting their children to and from after school activities.’

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. The charity also promotes safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies.
