JPCS is taking part in Road Safety Week 2013, organised by Brake, the national road safety charity, to raise awareness about road safety and promote steps that everyone can take to stop needless deaths and injuries year-round.
JPCS employees will be taking part in a range of activities to support the initiative, including:
- A Wear it Bright Day on Wednesday 20th – staff will wear their brightest clothes to work in exchange for a donation to Brake Charity. The day is to help to remind drivers to slow down and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists and raises awareness of people killed and injured on foot and bicycle on our roads every year.
- A Bake for Brake coffee morning on Friday 22nd – We’ll be holding a “Wake up for Work” coffee morning to raise awareness of the dangers of tired driving. Our employees will bring in cakes which will be sold on the day for a donation to Brake.
JPCS has also planned a range of communications intended to raising awareness of road safety issues internally and externally. Follow @jpcs_limited and the #RSW13 Twitter feed to keep up to date with JPCS’s Road Safety Week events and activities.
Brake is an independent road safety charity. Brake exists to stop the five deaths and 63 serious injuries that happen on UK roads every day and to care for families bereaved and seriously injured in road crashes. Brake runs awareness-raising campaigns, community education programmes, events such as Road Safety Week (18-24 November 2013), and a Fleet Safety Forum scheme, providing advice to companies. Brake’s support division cares for road crash victims through a helpline and other services.
Schools and organisations can run a Bright Day at any time of year. For more information and to receive a free resources pack contact Brake at firstname.lastname@example.org.
