Fundraise for Brake

Bright schoolHelp Brake prevent road deaths and injuries, and support victims of road crashes, by fundraising during Road Safety Week.

Many organisations, schools and individuals run fundraising activities during the Week as a fun, lively way to promote road safety within their community.

Fundraising ideas

COVID-19 update

All of the activities below can be adapted to run during the different COVID alert levels, such as dress down days via Zoom, or walking around your neighbourhood. Please ensure you are meeting the safety and hygiene requirements of the relevant alert level when holding your activities.

Hold a Step Up walk or cycle

Walk, run or cycle for Brake. You decide when, where and how far you go. You could go round your neighbourhood, along local cycle paths or trails, or sign up for a run or cycle ride. Get your family involved, or your colleagues or friends. Set up a Givealittle fundraising page and get sponsored for your activity.

Go Yellow

During Road Safety Week we're asking people to Go Yellow, by dressing in yellow, wearing a yellow ribbon, lighting a building up in yellow, theming a road safety display yellow, or otherwise going yellow to raise awareness of road safety. You could hold a dress down day in return for a donation to Brake, or get sponsored for your activity.

Step Up, Dress Down

Hold a dress down day and support Brake whilst Stepping Up for road safety. There are lots of options for your dress down day, including Go Yellow (see above) and the options below:

Bright Day

WYSD LogoHold a Bright Day - a dress down day with a difference, where everyone comes in wearing their brightest clothes in return for a gold coin donation to Brake. You'll also be helping to remind drivers to look out for people on foot and bike.

Wear Your Stripes

Hold a Wear Your Stripes day. Children dress like our mascot Zak the Zebra in stripy clothes, in return for a gold coin donation to Brake. The day also helps to raise road safety awareness, reminding drivers to slow down and look out for pedestrians and cyclists.
