‘Fixers’ to stage road safety event
A 15-year-old girl left paralysed after a road collision will feature in an event organised by a young person’s movement group to encourage young drivers to take care on the road.
Jordon Bone will be one of the panellists at the Fixers Road Safety Takeover event at Abbey Centre, Westminster, on 4 September.
Fixers is a movement of young people tackling issues ranging from drink, drugs, homelessness and mental health, through to unemployment, bullying and more. Their campaigns include films, songs, music videos and other resources, several of which have won awards.
With the help of Fixers, Jordon Bone created a wristband campaign to warn young people about taking unnecessary risks, both on and off the roads.
The Fixers Road Safety Takeover event will feature young people, MPs and a range of industry experts sharing opinions and debating key road safety challenges.
