We Improve Road Safety for School Children in Manchester

As part of our ongoing commitment to working with the local community, we donated road safety equipment to pupils in Blackburn and Ashton Under-Lyne in support of Road Safety Week 2023.

Supporting our communities

The national awareness week, which takes place from 20th to 26th of November 2023, is designed to educate children and young people about the dangers on roads and provide steps to help keep children safe near roads.

The donation from ourselves to Griffin Park Primary School in Blackburn and St Peter’s C of E Primary School in Ashton-Under-Lyne,   includes versatile light clips suitable for bikes, scooters, or backpacks, enhancing visibility during darker hours. In addition, road safety signs have been provided and will be displayed around the school premises, as well as walking ropes to assist in keeping children together and ensuring safe walking practices, especially when crossing roads.
