Corrine Foster Childminding ran a Beep Beep! Day on our first national date in March 2015. Fifteen children from the childminders took part in the event learning road safety basics. Using support from Brake, including using our template press release, local papers The Dronfield Eye and The Dronfield Advertiser covered the event.
Funkidoo Childminding in Bath ran a Beep Beep! Day in March. Lucy Giffen from Funkiddo childminding chose to run a Beep Beep! Day fundraiser after a recent bereavement due to a road crash in the local area, to help support Brake's campaigns for safer roads to prevent future tragedies. 50 children took part in their event which was supported by the local fire and rescue service who bought a fire engine for the children to look at.
Diana Pawsey ran a Beep Beep! Day on the second national date of the year in July at her childminding setting. Using one of Brake's new bumper resource packs they ran a range of events for the children, including using the activity cards to teach the children road safety songs, which they now sing on their walk to and from school. They also raised £20.00 to support Brake's campaigns and support services.
In March twent-six children from the nursery and reception classes of Eardisley CE Primary School ran a Beep Beep! Day. Using the bumper resource pack from Brake they ran a range of road safety activities, learning about being safe around roads in the school playground, creating posters to display in a 'road safety window' to show to parents, made traffic light biscuits, and learned road safety songs.
The children at Larbert Day Nursery in Falkirk enjoyed a whole week filled with activities for Road Safety Week. They were visited by the local lollipop lady, fire brigade and police to learn some road safety basics while engaging with their community. They ran a Beep Beep! Day on the final national event of the year, and enjoyed riding their bikes round the nursery gardens, while fundraising for Brake.
