This week sees the first of our GloWeek presentations in schools, spreading the Be Seen Not Hurt message. During the next few days we will be talking to thousands of primary school aged children from across the UK about how they can stay safe on the roads. We have been inundated with requests, which goes to show there is a real demand from schools for this type of session.
The clocks will soon be going back, half term is almost here and after that children will be making their way to and from school in darker conditions. Our message is a simple one, that there is a link between brain injury and road safety, also that our brains are amazing, and need to be protected.
Our presentations takes the road safety messages that children are likely to have heard before, but looks at it in a new way, by showing pupils how an RTA might result in a brain injury, and what that might mean for families.
Our supporters, as ever, are fully behind the campaign with offices and businesses up and down the country arranging some fantastic events to raise funds. The money raised through this campaign helps us to support more families whose lives have been affected by acquired brain injury.
If you would like to get your school or workplace involved with GloWeek then it’s not too late, you can request a fundraising pack by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
