Happy SHOESDAY 21st May

Help raise funds for Living Streets. Working to make streets safer for all since 1929.

Taking part has never been easier and more fun. Encourage your pupils to wear their happy shoes and walk to school on the day, collect a suggested donation of £1 towards our charitable work to create safer streets for all.

WHY IS FUNDRAISING FOR ROAD SAFETY SO URGENT?

 

More than a third of parents’ biggest concern is overcrowding at the school gates. The latest road casualty statistics show that 37% of children killed on our roads are during school run hours. This is heart-breaking and needs to change.

We need to create safer school walking routes with measures which protect children, such as lower speed limits and better crossings. By enabling and encouraging more families to walk to school, we can reduce the number of cars on our roads and improve safety for everyone. 

By fundraising for Happy Shoesday, you help us make streets safer for all and bring back a walking culture. The more we walk, the more our communities become friendlier, safer and nicer places to live.
