I'm Zak the Zebra and I’m the official mascot for Brake, the road safety charity.
I am very passionate about road safety and I love visiting local communities and helping raise awareness about the need for safe driving.
I love attending fundraising events, it’s so much fun! In the past couple of years I’ve run in a 5K race, I’ve taken part in a zip-slide across a football stadium, I’ve sold cakes at a Bake Sale, and I’ve scored a goal at a charity football match. If you have an event that you would like me to either “take part” in or just to be there to support those who are, then please get in touch.
Do you have a mascot race in your area? Would you like to help me take part? It's great awareness raising of the charity and also a great photo opportunity for me. if you know of any events I could run in, please get in touch.
Road Safety awareness raising events
Are you holding an event to raise awareness about road safety? Perhaps hosting a stand at a village fete, or down at your local supermarket? I’m great to grabbing people’s attention and they love coming over to talk to me – which is great, as it means you’ll be able to talk to them too. I can bring with me lots of road safety advice and information too. Just ask about free resources when you get in touch.
It’s true, I’m very cute! Kids of all ages love me! So if you’ve got an event at your local school or college why not invite me along. I’m always happy to have a cuddle and have my picture taken – remember, it’s great awareness raising for Brake and road safety too – as when the children are talking to me, you can talk to them about how important it is to cross at zebra crossings and be sensible at the road side. Did you know I’ve also written some very useful top travel tips for families – why not have a read.
Sometimes business events are very serious aren’t they. Why not invite me along to lighten the mood! The local media love me, so it might be a great way to get some press coverage for your company and your event. Get in touch and let’s have a chat.
Are you concerned that traffic in your area is putting people in danger, frightening families and stopping people from walking or cycling freely? If you’re planning an awareness raising event or demonstration, perhaps I could help. Fill in the form and tell me more.
Why not download a poster of me supporting Brake’s GO20 campaign and display it in your community somewhere and ask drivers to slow down.
If you want me to visit (please, please, please!) then fill in this form and my secretary will be in touch.
If you have any questions, why not email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m on Twitter too! Why not follow me @ZakBrake
Hear from you soon I hope.
