Pupils at Richmond Primary School in Skegness took a stride for road safety in the Brake Giant Walk.

The group joined 100,000 children across the country setting out to complete a combined 60,000 miles.

Organised by road safety charity Brake the initiative is aimed at making the roads safer for children to walk and cycle. It was the second year the school had taken part, with reception to Year 5 classes stepping out from the classroom.

Year 3 class teacher and PSHE coordinator Jane Pain, who organised the walk, said:

“Staff members and parents, made the children aware of dangers and the correct way to cross roads.”

The Giant Walk, sponsored by footwear retailer Brantano, is calling on drivers to ‘Go 20’ in areas near schools.
