As has been the case for a number of years now the Shire has donated some sponsorship space on playing kit to local charities and causes close to our clubs heart.
We again this year will carry Safe Drive Stay Alive logo on our shorts. This fantastic project saves young lives in our community.
Safe Drive Stay Alive is a Community Safety Partnership project to further educate young drivers in Scotland. It’s full-on, hard-hitting, realistic and highly emotive production which aims to reduce the number of casualties amongst young people.
In 2007, in a bid to cut the number of incidents, injuries and deaths on the area’s roads, the fire and rescue and police services teamed-up as the Central Scotland Road Safety Partnership, launching the Safe Drive Stay Alive initiative.
This annual event is open to the public and delivers thought-provoking messages to young drivers by demonstrating in realistic terms the potentially lethal consequences should they fail to understand and accept their responsibilities when either as a passenger or getting behind the wheel of a car.
Alan Faulds, our Shire Kitman, is chairperson for this charity and we all wish Alan and his team all the best for this years events.
