Sintons support GloWeek
GloWeek highlights the need to be ‘seen and not hurt’ by wearing bright items – such as reflective clothing while cycling and brightly-coloured clothing while out walking – to stand out in the dark as the nights become darker earlier.
The annual awareness week, led by the Child Brain Injury Trust, urges people to ‘glow’ in support of its message, to help protect more children and other more vulnerable road users this winter, while also raising vital funds to support its work.
Sintons is a longstanding supporter of GloWeek, with its Neurotrauma team working closely with the Child Brain Injury Trust for a number of years. The team acts for clients nationally who have sustained life-changing injury, including many children, and it is regularly appointed in cases based on its stellar reputation for its legal and client service excellence.
Its team are again joining in with the ‘glow’ theme, to play their part in sharing such a vital safety message geared around preventing serious injury.
Andrew McGowan, head of Neurotrauma, says: “We see all too often the consequences of road collisions and the life-changing, or even sometimes fatal, impact that can have on vulnerable road users. There are very real dangers in using the roads, and we must do all we can to promote the message of safety to all road users – motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike.
“We see first-hand the work of the Child Brain Injury Trust in supporting young people and their families after serious injury, helping them through some of the most difficult days they will have faced and enabling them to rebuild their lives. Their commitment to being by the sides of families mirrors that of our team, and we are very pleased to work together in so many instances.
“We would urge everyone to do their bit to get behind GloWeek – as well as the vital fundraising element, the awareness is hugely important, particularly as the nights become darker. We all have a role to play in making the roads a safer place for everyone.”
