A freebie and the 'Tales of the Road' campaign

As a farewell to this blog I've a freebie giveaway, courtesy of the kind people at Halfords and in support of Digital Outlook.

Summer is here and my children are out and about more, so I'm offering this blog post in support of the DfT’s ‘Tales of The Road’ campaign.



You might have already seen in cinemas or in the ‘Jazzy Books’ handouts at school, the story of ‘the boy who didn’t find a safe place to cross’. It stresses the importance of children crossing the road at a point where cars can see them. You can see the ad here

The ‘Tales of the Road’ website has been updated with a new game. And they've added a new section which focuses on ‘Cycle Safety’.

Road safety is such an important issue for parents and children and I'm keen to help to spread the word.

So, today I'm offering one lucky blog friend the chance to win this Power Ranger themed cycle kit:



(helmet, bell, drinks bottle and gloves)

(It can be for you or for any Power Ranger fan that you may know)

All you have to do is post 'pick me' into this blog post's comments by 3pm Saturday 20 June.

And I'll draw a name out of a mug next Sunday.

And for those of you with girls, you can check out lovely friend DJ's blog today (on June 14) (and I think at Jo's blog some time soon) for the chance to win a Bratz themed cycle kit.

Oh do enter, go on, go on, go on.

Oh I shan't enter this, I think there are people more deserving of that fabulous Power Rangers themed cycle kit - but just wanted to say that this is a lovely thing to do.

Mine's up now Caroline. Thanks for the mention. I think it's a fab campaign. Oh and I have the Bratz cycling kit. It's very sweet.

Also, I must read your books, and I wish I'd seen that Richard & Judy show. What you did was amazing. :D

Not sure my big head would fit into the power rangers gear, tempted though I am. As someone who was flattened by a car a s a child (yes I am the boy who didn't find a safe place to cross!) I reckon it's a great cause though!

Johanne said...

That's a sweet gesture.

Pick me! Hi Caroline, DJ sent me over here so please pop me into your mug too, thanks :o)

Chris said...

Hi Caroline

Please pick me, it'll give me a decent excuse to leave all those wretched purple sacks of investigations at home and get out and about with some (fairly wobbly) children..!!!

All the best

Chris

Jessica said...

Pick me please oh please! We have three boys and the oldest (7) is still using stabilizers (training wheels for us yanks). This would be the push we need for us all to get serious about him learning how to really, truly, ride a bike! Thanks heaps! Jessica

If you can pop me in a mug you really are magical but my name well that might just fit:0) No, I've not got children hidden in my workroom I've never mentioned but some of the care workers at THE mans home have many children and not much money so a lucky dip there if my name comes out would raise a smile I suspect.

Safe travelling to your new blog:0)
