The company is building new homes at New Cardington Fields, off Mason Road in New Cardington and made the donation to Shortstown Primary School, less than half a mile from the development.

The vests will be available to use on school trips as well as at playtime and in lessons.

Denise Cottam, headteacher at Shortstown Primary School, said: It is lovely working so closely with Bellway, who have been working on the sites around the school since we moved in in 2013. There have been a number of opportunities for the children to get involved and the hi-vis jackets will be used when taking the children out, into their community, safely.
