Stephensons makes the Brake Pledge for national Road Safety Week

Stephensons, the national law firm, has supported National Road Safety Week with a series of presentations at primary schools across Greater Manchester.

Personal injury solicitor, Shahina Sakeria - a volunteer with the road safety charity Brake - visited Leigh St Tomas Primary School, Leigh Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School and Woodfield Primary School in Wigan, to teach the youngsters about the importance of road safety.

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.

The children also got involved with a road safety poster competition, with a number of prizes to be won.

Shahina said: "It was wonderful to get a chance to discuss road safety with the children, particularly with winter upon us and children making their journey to and from school in darker conditions.

"We have been organising Brake safety presentations for a number of years and we always enjoy seeing the enthusiasm of the pupils when dealing with such an important issue.

“We hope that each of them found something they could take away from the presentation to keep them safe on the roads and around school.”

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.
