Bumper prize for road safety design winners

Stephensons makes the Brake Pledge for national Road Safety Week

Stephensons has revisited a number of North West schools to hand out prizes for a road safety design competition.

Personal Injury solicitor, Shahina Sakeria returned to Leigh St Thomas Primary School, Woodfield Primary School and Leigh Sacred Heart Primary School to see some of the children’s designs and hand out more than £250 in prizes. The winners each received a high street voucher to spend in the run up to Christmas.

In November, Stephensons helped to spread awareness of road safety to mark the nationwide ‘National Road Safety Week’ in conjunction with Brake. Thousands of organisations, schools and community groups backed the ‘Make the Brake Pledge’ campaign, with Stephensons running a series of sessions at local schools to help teach children about the importance of staying safe when out and about.

The interactive presentation asked the children to identify different types of road user and the hazards that they might pose. The children also got an opportunity to talk about their own journey to school and how to stay safe and seen when out and about.

Brake is a road safety charity working with communities and organisations across the UK to stop the tragedy of road deaths and injuries, make streets and communities safer for everyone, and support people bereaved and seriously injured on roads.
