Claire Kincaid, Specsavers Greenock store director, said: “‘As our evenings begin to get darker much quicker it’s vital that we ensure that everyone is seen and safe, so we were more than happy to support Whinhill Primary Nursery and the 5th Scouts division.

“With nights getting darker, we also urge drivers to be conscious of their eyesight and visit the team if they’ve not had an eye examination in the past two years.”
