Allison Homes donates hi-vis bag tags to school children for International Walk to School Month

In honour of International Walk to School Month, which is taking place throughout all of October, we have proudly donated bag tags to nine primary schools across our Central region, helping pupils to stay safe on the way to and from school.

The bag tags are reflective and custom-made in the shape of hi-vis jackets. Children can clip these to their schoolbags to make them more visible to passing cars, helping them to stay safe nearby busy roads as they walk and cycle between home and school.

In Lincolnshire, Stanford Junior and Infant School, William Hildyard CofE Primary and Nursery School, Kirton Lindsey Primary School, Corby Glen Community Primary School, Moulton Chapel Primary School and Kirton Primary School each received bag tags for their pupils to enjoy.

Cambridgeshire schools of Wittering Primary School and Alderman Jacobs School also received bag tags, as well as Langham CofE Primary School in Rutland.

Natalie Willcock, Headteacher at Corby Glen Community Primary School, said: “We are delighted to have received this donation from Allison Homes. As the dark evenings will soon be upon us these bag tags will be very useful, and the children can’t wait to clip them onto their own bags.

“It’s important to us that our pupils stay safe on their journeys to and from school, and we always jump at any opportunity to encourage our children and parents to walk to school, instead of drive. Thank you to Allison Homes for helping keep our pupils safe.”

Samantha Hart, Sales and Marketing Director at Allison Homes Central Region, said: “We are delighted to have donated these bag tags to nine primary schools, making sure school children are staying safe and bright!

“As autumn is now in full swing and the nights are drawing in, it’s more important than ever for pupils to remain visible when walking alongside busy roads. At Allison Homes, we proud to be supporting the communities in which we build, and are thrilled to have made these donations.”
