Kids shine brightly in Pebley visi vests

What do 420 children in high-visibility jackets look like? Bright, is the short answer. And on Friday morning (February 14) pupils from Robert Le Kyng primary school in Swindon donned their 'visi vests' to raise money for the road safety charity Brake.

Bridgemead-based Suzuki and Hyundai dealership Pebley Beach has donated visi vests to each of the children at its nearest school, helping them to stay safe and be seen.

In return, the company asked the children to take part in a special dress-down event, by wearing bright clothes - along with their visi vests - to raise money for Brake.

Besides the fun, there was a serious message: that wearing bright clothes makes children more visible to motorists, especially on dark winter mornings and evenings.

Dominic Threlfall, managing director of Pebley Beach said: "Keeping our children safe on Swindon's streets is the responsibility of us all.

"That's why, as well as issuing children with visi vests, we've offered their parents a free winter health check for their car, in return for a £5 donation to Brake.

"And it's an offer we've extended to every motorist in Swindon, who can book by visiting our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pebleybeach and clicking on the Winter Check tab."

Dave Barnett, assistant head teacher at Robert Le Kyng Primary School, said: "We were delighted to run a Bright Day for Brake to support a worthwhile charity.

"We also saw it as a great opportunity to tell our children about our school's particular issues - the importance of using the lollypop man, being careful when using mobile phones on the road, and not walking through the school car park."

Brake spokesman Rich Andrew said: "The money donated by Robert Le Kyng Primary School and Pebley Beach will be crucial in funding our work supporting people bereaved or injured by road crashes, and campaigning for safer roads in communities across the UK".

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
