With Road Safety Week this week, Lyndhurst School in Camberley has been getting ready. With road traffic injuries being a leading cause of death and injury to young people in the U.K., Road Safety Week provides an opportunity for schools to work together with children to highlight the very real dangers of a very familiar place – the road – and to take steps, both small and large, to educating children about road safety and to make sure that they get home safely each day.
In this, the school are most grateful to Conquest Consultancy for facilitating a joint initiative with Specsavers Camberley, Britain’s best-known optical retail chain, in generously having provided 150 high-visibility jackets for the children to wear. As Lyndhurst is a family school, the donation is more than enough for every child, and will make a very welcome addition to the school’s efforts on road safety.
Dan Adams of Conquest Consultancy said “We are delighted to bring together two of our clients to emphasise road safety & help the children of Lyndhurst to be safer whilst crossing roads.”
At Lyndhurst School, road safety is of paramount importance. With the addition of Specsavers’ high-visibility jackets to the school’s road safety measures, the children will undoubtedly be safer, from this Road Safety Week onwards, than ever before.
Darren Fagg from Specsavers Camberley added “With dark mornings and evenings drawing in we are delighted to be able to help make school journeys safer for our local community and to help generate road safety awareness for the children of Lyndhurst School”
