Amazing entries for Clarke Willmott’s Road Safety Superheroes Competition
This week has been Road Safety Week, an annual event co-ordinated by Brake – the road safety charity which highlights road safety issues and campaigns to reduce the number of injuries and deaths that occur on our roads.
The Personal Injury team at Clarke Willmott wholeheartedly support Road Safety Week – we represent clients who have sustained life changing injuries because of road traffic accidents – and they are unanimous in saying they don’t want others to go through what they have suffered – and anything which might raise awareness and reduce accidents is something we will always support.
Clarke Willmott are also members of the Brain Injury Group who provide anyone affected by brain injury with expert legal, financial and welfare services. To support Road Safety Week the Brian Injury Group have been running a national competition for children to design their very own road safety superhero.
At Clarke Willmott we asked our staff to encourage any children they know to enter the competition, and in addition we have offered our own prizes to the best entries we received.
In first place was Hallie aged 8, with our judges saying “we loved that she had a superhero “Supergirl” and that she was able to give really good tips on how to stay safe”
In second place was Freddy aged 8 with his magnificent “Supercrosser”, again helping us all to stay safe.
In third place was Alex aged 5 he gave us our age old road safety hero the good old lollipop person who is invaluable for all children staying safe every day to and from school.
“The quality of the entries we have had to our competition has blown us away. The children have been so creative, and even more importantly have demonstrated great awareness of road safety issues which hopefully will keep them safe on our roads, and encourage other road users to behave in ways to keep all of us safe. I really hope that this year’s Road Safety Week has been another step towards reducing the injuries we see on our roads all too frequently.”
Prizes will be on their way to our winners shortly. Thank you to everyone who entered.
