We’re heading back to school for Road Safety Week!
Running November 23rd to 29th, this year’s theme is ‘drive less, live more’ and aims to improve road safety and the environment by reducing the number of car journeys we take.
Road traffic accidents are the leading cause of brain injury in the UK, which is why we’ve chosen to support the Road Safety Week for several years.
To show our support, Amie Prowle, of our personal injury claims team in Bristol, will be spending some time at Hillcrest Primary School, in Totterdown, to talk to the children about road safety awareness.
We’ve asked the children at Hillcrest to show us their favourite ‘wacky ways’ to get to school and are looking forward to seeing their ideas. Amie will be judging pictures of them travelling to school by their preferred method, with prizes for the winning entry and runner up from each year group, as well as the winning class.
Every child taking part will receive a reflective gift from the Brain Injury Group to help them be seen and be safe on the roads.
Amie says “The ‘wacky ways’ competition is designed to engage the children’s interest and spark their imagination whilst emphasising the importance of road safety.
We’re really looking forward to seeing how the children at Hillcrest would like to travel to school. Personally I like the idea of travelling to work or school by a sledge pulled by Huskies – great fun on the hills of Bristol!”
