Be Safe, Be Seen in Manchester

Helping keep our children safe on the roads

When it comes to this time of year, the nights are darker and the roads become an even more dangerous place for children. Even if walking with their grownups, this can still pose a danger.

Since 2010 we've been working with primary schools up and down the country to keep children safe when the nights turn darker. We do this by giving away blue reflective "Be safe, be seen" pin badges, but also by delivering school assemblies that have been prepared by road safety charity, Brake.

We were pleased to be able to visit the New Islington Primary School recently. As the closest primary school to our Central Office in Manchester, and in our busy city centre, we really wanted to talk to them about road safety as well as handing out the badges. The assembly was enjoyed by both the children and the teachers, especially when the lights went out to demonstrate the reflective badges!
