Offaly shop announce brilliant child safety initiative for new term

An Offaly shop has announced a brilliant new initiative sure to ease the concerns of many parents.

Leavy's Centra in Tullamore has said that they are there to help if a child happens to miss their bus, lose their phone or get into a similar situation.

A number of Centra stores are taking part in the same initiative with Leavy's explaining on Facebook:

"Now that the schools are back and the dark evenings are upon us, should your son or daughter ever miss the bus, lose a phone and for whatever reason need to contact you, we would be glad to call home on their behalf."

They say that the students can "just ask any manager or staff member in-store to help. They are welcome to wait in-store until their lift arrives," the shop continued. 

The service has been welcomed by many parents in Tullamore as the new term begins.
