COUNCIL SPONSOR BUSINESS AWARD


South Northamptonshire is taking centre stage at this year’s SME Northamptonshire Business Awards. South Northamptonshire Council


The Brightkidz Walk to School event


LOCAL FIRMS URGED TO BACK HEALTHY ACTIVITIES


Businesses can make a difference in their local community, by backing fun and engaging projects aimed at getting more children walking, cycling and scooting safely to school. Kettering-based social enterprise, Brightkidz, is


calling for Northamptonshire businesses to support or sponsor initiatives which promote active travel and road safety. Following the success of its Kettering-piloted project,


ST:EPS (Safe Travel: Enabling Pupils and Schools), Brightkidz is developing even more opportunities for businesses to get involved. “Supporting a project that will help schools promote


and inspire safe and active travel is a fantastic way for businesses to raise their profile and put back into their local community,” said Brightkidz founder, Alison Holland. “Our recent Walk to School event in Kettering was


supported by Wicksteed Park who provided a guest appearance from their well-known ‘Wicky Bear’, and we


had over 60 children take part which is a great example of successful partnership working. “Business owners or employees could be school


governors or have a lot of staff or colleagues with children at a particular school, so they might like to sponsor an event, training session or activity, or fund equipment to keep children engaged, like reflectors and accessories. It doesn't matter what sector they are in either – the sooner businesses get involved, the more social impact this project will make.” Brightkidz’ trading arm includes its general


promotional products range, Brand My Thingy – where 100% of profits are ploughed back into supporting active travel initiatives.


For more information on becoming a business or community partners in ST:EPS email alison@brightkidz.co.uk or visit www.brightkidz.co.uk/steps. For information about Brand My Thingy visit www.brandmythingy.com
