Stephensons Supports Road Safety Week

Stephensons, the national law firm, supported National Road Safety Week with a presentation at a local Greater Manchester primary school.

Shahina Sakeria, a volunteer with the road safety charity Brake, visited Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School in Leigh to educate year eight on the importance of road safety. The interactive presentation analysed how each of the children made the journey to school and demonstrated ways to see and be seen on the roads, whether walking or riding a bike.

The children also took part in interactive road safety games working against the clock and competing with their classmates. They also got involved with a poster competition, with £90-worth of prizes to be won.

Shahina, road safety expert said: "It was wonderful to meet with the year eight children to talk about road safety, particularly with winter drawing in when visibility on the roads is reduced.

"Stephensons has organised Brake safety presentations for many years now and we are always impressed by the enthusiasm and maturity of the young pupils on such an important issue.

"I'd like to thank the staff and pupils from Sacred Heart Primary for giving us the opportunity to speak to them and hope we will get the opportunity to return next year”.

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.
