ty as charity ty Brake partnerswith Aardman

Shaun the Sheep will help children learn about road safety when he appears in a series of fun new resources being produced by charity Brake. The famous character, created by award-winning studio Aardman, is supporting Brake’s flagship proj

oject for children and primary schools, Brake’s

KidsWalk. The mischievous sheep and his flock will help children learn key road safety messages, while raising awareness among grown-ups about protecting children on roads.

Brake’s KidsWalk with Shaun the Sheep will take place onWednesday 26 June. The project, in partnership with Ocado Foundation, will see thousands of children aged 4-11 put their best feet forward when they take part in an organised walk to promote road safety and the health and planet-saving benefits of walking.

The project is free to take part in, with participants receiving a resource

certificates, stickers, assembly presentations and lesson p pack that includes posters, activity sheets, colouring shee

the Sheep.

Brake has been helping schools, nurseries and parents talk to children about keeping safe near roads for almost 25 years. In 2018, more than 100,000 children are estimated to have taken part in Brake’s KidsWalk, with events taking place across the UK, as well as Europe and Africa. On average, six children are killed or seriously injured on roads in Britain every day, and theWorld Health Organization says road crashes are the leading killer of children and young adults (aged 5–29) globally. As part of the project children can fundraise to support Brake’s work campaigning for safer roads and supporting people who have been bereaved or seriously injured following a road crash.

Shaun the Sheep is a stop-motion animated character who leads an adventurous life as leader of his flock onMossy Bottom Farm. Since first appearing inWallace & Gromit’s A Close Shave, Shaun has gone on to star in his own television series and a feature-length film. His second film Shaun the SheepMovie: Farmageddon will be released later this year.

designed to improve social mobility.

The national education charity Future First has partnered with Taylor Wessing to offer a programme for 80 sixth form students from London schools which will improve their aspiration and confidence and boost their job readiness and employability.

The students joined TaylorWessing staff for insight days designed to inform them about what to expect from a career in law and the skills needed to succeed in it. Those who showed ability were linked with a TaylorWessing mentor who worked with them more closely over three months. Students who impress on the mentoring scheme will now progress onto Taylor Wessing’s Tomorrow’s Talent programme which provides students with meaningful work experience, client insight and support to apply for education or employment opportunities in future.

Future First’s programme aims to provide TaylorWessing with a diverse pipeline of entrants into law. It also gives the firm’s staff the opportunity to develop their skills in volunteering with young p normally expect to encounter such prospects. Students attending a recent insight day came
