Texaco's 'Hector Tour' seeks help from RSOs
Texaco is asking RSOs to help deliver safety messages to primary age children through its 'Hector' campaign, which is supported by Road Safety GB.
Pupils from across England and Wales will be given a lesson on how to stay safe on the roads by Hector, the streetwise face of child road safety from the Texaco brand. Hector - a schoolboy with a ‘particularly peculiar imagination’ - and his team plan to tour 20 regional locations between 16-27 November.
Appreciating that RSOs are the road safety experts, Texaco is keen to work with local road safety teams. As such, RSOs are being asked to help with the Hector tour in the following locations: Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol, Southampton, London, Portsmouth, Ashford, Preston, Blackpool, Stoke on Trent, Leicester, Swansea, Oxford, Derby and Coventry.
Parents visiting Texaco service stations from the last week in October will be able to collect free Hector materials. A range of promotional materials including a DVD (animated by triple Oscar winners, Aardman Productions), books, reflective stickers, reflective Pac-A-Macs and lollipops, will also be available for RSOs to order.
