Our McKenna funeral home keeping children safe

McKenna's donated 150 reflective badges

“Be Safe, Be Seen” – that’s the message being promoted by our McKenna Funeral Home in Leyland.

As part of the Co-op Funeralcare initiative, McKenna’s donated 150 reflective badges to local youngsters in the area to ensure their safety going to and returning from St Mary’s Catholic School.

The yellow high visibility reflective pin-badges were given to pupils, aged between 5 yers and 7 years at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in the local area.

Lisa Buchanan, Funeral Arranger at the McKenna Funeral Home in Leyland said: “With the clocks having gone back this weekend, darker mornings and evenings mean youngsters need to take even more care on their way to and from school.

“To help keep children safe and to raise awareness of the importance of road safety we are providing reflective stickers to children at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.”

Louise O’Mahony, Head Teacher at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School praised the initiative: “We welcome this road safety initiative by McKenna Funeral Home. The safety of our pupils is of the upmost importance to us.”
