The jackets will help children be seen when they are taken out and about, say leaders

Honiton Scout Group has road safety in its sights following the donation of 100 high visibility vests from the local Specsavers branch.

Stephen Auty, director of the High Street store, said: “We are keen to support the local community in any way we can. What better way to highlight road safety than ensuring local children are safe when they’re out and about than with high visibility vests.”

The donation aims to promote work by Brake, the road safety charity which works to inspire schools, organisations and communities to promote life saving measures.

Group Scout leader, Helen Turner, said: “When Specsavers in Honiton contacted us with the offer of free high visibility jackets, we were overjoyed. We plan to use the vests for the all of the groups throughout the year not just during the darker evenings.
