Kids Glow Safe with Mears Support

As part of its continued support of local communities, the Maidstone branch of leading repairs and maintenance provider Mears Group has made a donation of 130 high visibility vests to Molehill Copse Primary school in support of its 'Walk to School Wednesdays'.   As the days begin to get shorter, keeping pupils who walk to school safe on the streets has been made easier with the support from Mears - a company whose philosophy is based on improving peoples' lives throughout the UK.   "Supporting local communities is a fundamental aspect of our culture," explains Sharron Farley, office manager, Mears Maidstone. "We're thrilled to be able to make a contribution to their 'Walk to School Wednesdays' initiative which, on so many levels, is a really fantastic idea."   Developed as part of the Maidstone goes Green Project, the initiative has been extremely popular with over 70 percent of pupils now choosing to walk to school.   "We are delighted to be working in partnership with such a prominent company as Mears," continues John Pearson, Headmaster of Molehill Primary School. "We did already have a lot of children walking to school but this initiative has given that added bit of incentive and with the additional support from a safety aspect parents have been even more keen to get involved which is just great."   ENDS
