Schools slow down for charity

Brake wants the UK's primary school children to catch the bus – the Giant Walking Bus!

The national road safety charity is urging primary educators across the country to get their schools involved in the initiative, which aims to highlight the dangers of speeding and to encourage youngsters to walk to class as part of the Kids Say Slow Down campaign.

The event, which will take place on June 15th, is set to send more than 100,000 children marching from their school gates, with Brake keen to break, no pun intended, its own world record of 119,697 participants, set last year. Once again, schools are being encouraged to personalise their walking bus in whatever creative ways they fancy, and raise funds for the charity, ensuring there are plenty of exciting ways children can get into the spirit of the day.

Schools wishing to register to take part should contact Brake on 01484 559 909 or by emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or head online to fill out this form.
