Friday, 08 May 2015 13:31

Jaguar Pack smallOur Jaguar Pack Cubs have been spreading the word about the UN's Global Road Safety week with the help of Sally Symmons from the team at Road Safety Enfield. Supporters are encouraged to take selfies - or rather 'safeys' with their #SaveKidsLives message sign board and share it on social media like our Facebook and Twitter pages, to spread the message - which they did!

The worldwide campaign ‪#‎SaveKidsLives‬ seeks to highlight the plight of children on the world's roads and generate action to better ensure their safety. Every day more than 500 children lose their lives in traffic crashes globally. Thousands are injured.

For more information go to http://www.savekidslives2015.org/ 4-10 May | The UN Global Road Safety Week.  Well done to our Cubs - keep spreading the word and keep safe.
