RADAR are celebrating Walk to School Week on 15th – 19th May. Walking is a great low-impact exercise, ideal for all ages, regardless of fitness level. Walking regularly has so many benefits such as higher energy levels, reduced stress levels and an improved feeling of well being.
This week marks National Road Safety week and we’re urging everyone to sign the Brake Pledge, committing to make our roads a safer place. Road crashes are the biggest non-medical cause of death among children and the biggest killer overall among young people. Every day 5 people die on UK roads. Statistics like this remind us how unsafe our roads can be but if we all drive and behave responsibly then these numbers will dramatically reduce.
Hey folks, It was an absolute pleasure to be asked to write for RADAR NI. The work that they do is nothing short of incredible. My name is Anita Dennison and I am a 20 year old Queen’s University student. I have an award winning campaign that helps and advises young people and their parents 24/7 on all things bullying and mental health related, but sadly things haven’t always been this positive for me.
