Run a Bright Day for Brake


Bright dayDig out your neon tutu and fluorescent leg warmers and run a Bright Day in your workplace. It's fantastic way to have some fun in your workplace, whilst helping raise vital funds for Brake.

Everyone turns up wearing their brightest clothes and donates a pound to Brake. The day helps to remind drivers to slow down and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists and raises awareness of people killed and injured on foot and bicycle on our roads every year. Your funds raised will help Brake to support people bereaved or injured by road crashes.

If you are an educator and want to run a dress down day in your school or nursery,  visit our "Wear Your Stripes day" web page.



Step one: Plan it
Choose a date to run your Bright Day, and register online for your free resource pack by clicking above. The resource pack includes everything you will need to have fun in your office, and a paying-in slip to return  donations. Alternatively email if you have any questions. Remind everyone the day before to come along dressed in something bright, not their normal work clothes.

Step two: Do it

On the morning of your Bright Day, encourage everyone donates at least a pound for taking part in the Bright Day. You could have a prize for the best outfit, or maybe a Bright Day parade in your office?

Step three: Share it

Take lots of photos and share them on social media. Make sure to tag Brake on Instagram and Twitter and use the hashtag #BrakeBrightDay.

Step four: Donate it

You can pay any money raised to Brake by using the paying-in slip included in your pack, donating online or sending a cheque to Brake, PO Box 548, Huddersfield HD1 2XZ. Alternatively, you can pay by card over the phone by calling 01484 559909.
