Developer helping keep pupils safe this winter
12:00pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
A DEVELOPER has teamed up with a town school to keep pupils safe during the winter months.
McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement developer, has donated 250 reflective wristbands to children at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Ombersley Way.
The wristbands are to help raise awareness of road safety and to make pupils more visible to passing motorists during busy rush hour conditions.
Headteacher from St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Miranda Gibbs, said: “We actively encourage our pupils to walk to and from school; it’s a great way to keep healthy and active and reduces road congestion. However, many are now finding themselves doing their journey in the dark, and we’re keen to make sure they stay as visible and safe as possible.
“We’d like to say a big thank you to McCarthy & Stone for the reflective armbands – they’ll definitely help our pupils to stand out.”
Gill Sabin, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, added: “We’re committed to supporting the local communities in which we build so it’s a real pleasure to be able to make these donations and hopefully help in some way towards keeping pupils safe on their journeys to and from school.”
McCarthy & Stone is currently inviting over 70s to register their interest in the range of one and two bedroom assisted living apartments at Horton Mill Court in Droitwich Spa.
