Fundraise for Brake!
Help Brake prevent road deaths and injuries, and support victims of road crashes, by fundraising during Road Safety Week.
Many organisations, schools and individuals run fundraising activities during the Week as a fun, lively way to promote road safety within their community.
For example, Goodmans Law in Liverpool held a Bright Day as part of a road safety awareness-raising event (see picture, right). Staff wore their brightest and wackiest clothing, sporting fluorescent legwarmers, orange neon face paints, oversized sunglasses and multicolored wristbands.
You can also order your own collection tub to put up in your community, workplace or school.
Just visit our shop for more informartion.
To support this year's theme of Speed Down Save Lives, why not enter a local 5K or 10K run? Even if you’ve never run before, you can start off slow and gradually SPEED up your stamina and fitness.
Or organise a snail race, with a track made from a damp cloth on top of a table.
Grab your apron and hold a Bake for Brake fundraiser. Making a load of cupcakes is the simplest thing in the world, but everyone loves them, particularly if they know their extra calorie intake is all in a good cause.
You can have your own one-off sale, or sell tasty treats during a big event, such as a school fete, coffee morning or charity night. And why not hold a pay-to-enter baking competition for your friends or colleagues? Pick a judge – perhaps a local dignitary or your boss – to vote on which is the best. You can set categories, eg ‘best decorated’ or ‘most tasty’.
