For the seventh year running, Brain Injury Group supported Brake’s Road Safety Week which ran from 19 to 25 November. This year’s theme was Bike Smart, providing information on keeping safe when out on a bicycle or motorcycle, as well as providing information to other road users about being aware of those on two wheels.
Twelve Brain Injury Group member firms and associates partnered with 15 schools across England, Scotland and Wales, to run a poster competition for 4,504 primary school children, asking them to think up ideas of cyclists can stay safe on our roads, and giving them the opportunity to design on paper their own cycle helmet.
Prizes were awarded during school assemblies to those children whose posters were judged to be the top three in the school.
We look forward to supporting Road Safety Week in 2019.
A selection of photos from the event are available in our Road Safety Week 2018 event gallery.
