Specsavers West Bridgford donates hi-viz vests to scout group

Specsavers in West Bridgford is helping to ensure youngsters in the local community can be seen clearly by donating high visibility vests to a local Beavers group.

Specsavers West Bridgford on Central Avenue donated vests to the 3rd West Bridgford Friary Scout Group to help ensure children stay safe when out and about.

‘We wanted to do something to improve the safety of the local community,’ says Specsavers West Bridgford store director, Stephen Rogers.

‘It’s great that we have been able to support the local Beavers group as they often take part in outdoor activities.

‘We hope the vests will provide some peace of mind for parents and for the leaders who look after them.’

Alan Hubber, leader of the West Bridgford Scout group said: ‘We’d like to thank Specsavers for donating hi-vis vests for our youngest section of six to eight year olds that we call Beaver Scouts. These have been very useful when we have ventured out, especially when the visibility is poor, to help keep Beavers safe.’ 

In line with guidance from the NHS, Specsavers are keeping safety measures in place, including the wearing of face coverings, unless there is a medical exemption. This includes maintaining social distancing in stores, continuing to use PPE and sanitising all testing equipment and frames before and after each use. 

Specsavers will also continue to operate its Ask The Expert chat function on its website and its RemoteCare service, which enable customers to speak to an expert from the comfort of their home via video call or phone.
