Neil Hudgell Solicitors and Hull Children’s University are launching a competition to promote road safety.
Children in ten primary schools across Hull are being invited to design a poster to promote Road Safety Week, organised by Brake, the road safety charity, which takes place from November 19 to 25.
The best design will be turned into a poster distributed to all Hull Primary schools – and the winner will also receive a Kindle electronic book for their school donated by Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in claims for personal injury and medical negligence.
Eve Clark, Commercial, Fundraising and Business Manager at Hull Children’s University said: “We are really proud to work with Neil Hudgell Solicitors and be involved in this year’s National Road Safety Week.
“After the Olympics we have seen an increase in children cycling on the roads therefore it is paramount that they are aware of the importance of road safety.”
Neil Hudgell, Managing Director of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, said: “We have sponsored Road Safety Week for several years. Hopefully, this competition will encourage children to think about how to be safe on the roads and to come up with some effective ways to share that message with other school pupils. We are looking forward to seeing the designs.”
Brake spokesperson Richard Coteau said: “Brake is delighted that Neil Hudgell Solicitors is again supporting the charity during our National Road Safety Week by launching its Design A Poster competition. It’s a great way to get children thinking about how to keep themselves safe and we would encourage schools to use the competition as an opportunity to raise awareness of road safety with their students.”
Schools invited to take part in the poster competition are all near Neil Hudgell Solicitors’ three Hull offices on Holderness Road, Kingswood and Princes Avenue. They include Stepney Primary School, Pearson Primary School, Sidmouth Primary School, St Nicholas Primary School, Endike Primary School, Griffin Primary School, Maybury Primary School, Thanet Primary School, Foredyke Primary School and Southcoates Primary School.
Hull Children’s University is an innovative and dynamic project that raises children’s self-esteem, achievements and learning aspirations through the delivery of various modules and programmes, inside and outside the classroom.
The competition begins at the start of the new school year, the deadline for poster entries is 28th September and the winner of the competition will be announced on 8th October ahead of the clocks changing and dark nights arriving.
