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.
'Make the Pledge' fundraising ideas
SLOW – Enter a local 5K or 10K run. Even if you’ve never run before, you can start off SLOW and gradually build up your stamina and fitness.
SOBER – Give up alcohol until Christmas and donate the money you save to Brake.
SECURE – Strap yourself in SECUREly when you take the plunge and do a sponsored parachute jump for Brake.
SILENT – Organise a silent auction. Obtain prizes, display them in the office, and ask people to put bids into a sealed envelope, with the highest bid winning the prize.
SHARP – Arrange a charity treasure hunt, with everyone staying SHARP and keeping their eyes peeled for hidden clues.
SUSTAINABLE – Go green and recycle: sell unwanted books, toys, clothes, gifts etc on eBay and donate the money to Brake.
