To help schools across Reading keep their children safe during the darker evenings, Taylor Wimpey West London donated new head torches to three schools in the area.
Among the three schools that received the 108 head torches were The Vine Christian School, Lambs Lane Primary School and Shinfield St Mary’s Church of England Junior School.
The head torches are helping the children be seen by drivers when out and about in the local community and allow them to stay safe to and from their walk to school and after school clubs.
Mrs Eve Strike, Headmistress at The Vine Christian School,commented: “The safety of our children is one of our utmost priorities so we’d like to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for the 28 head torches we have received. We encourage our parents and children to be active in the community when possible and with these head torches, children will be safer during the evenings.”
Nikki Gibson,Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West London said: “We’re proud to donate these much needed head torchers to each of the schools as we know they’ve already gone a long way in helping the children stay safe when the evenings were drawing in during the darker months. It means a great deal to us that we can provide equipment that can help to create a safer community and we look forward to seeing the children making use of the head torches for many years to come.”
