TO mark Walk to School month, Miller Homes has revealed it is helping children across Scotland travel to and from school safely by donating high-vis vests to pupils near to its developments.
The housebuilder has expanded its Home Safe campaign across the UK for its third year. As the morning and afternoon walks to and from school get a little darker, the aim is that the bright yellow vests will make the youngsters more visible to drivers.
Peter Thomson, regional MD for Miller Homes Scotland, said, “We’re excited to launch our Home Safe campaign again this year, helping children across Scotland get to and from school safely. As we approach the darker months, we hope the high vis vests will make children stand out against vehicles, making their journey to and from school safer, especially near busy roads.
“We warmly welcome everyone to get involved and pick up a vest from a selection of our marketing suites across the central belt.”
Suitable for all primary school children, the high-vis vests will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be collected from the sales centres from Thursday to Monday, 10:30-5:30pm.
