Dodd & Co know how to keep your children safe

Dodd & Co Chartered Accountants have helped to keep current and future pupils of Scotby Church of England School safe, by providing high visibility jackets to allow all the pupils to be seen when out on school trips and visits.

The churches in Scotby and Wetheral are a very important part of school activities, but the journey between sites has often proved a challenging task, negotiating the roads and passing underneath the bridge safely. The dark winter months make this journey even more difficult, particularly with the huge increase of traffic diverting through the village of Scotby following the floods.

Bevan Osgood, a Tax Manager at Dodd & Co Chartered Accountants based at Rosehill, Carlisle is a parent governor and Vice chairman of the school governors at Scotby. He approached his firm for sponsorship to request they supply each child a high visibility jacket to help alert drivers and make the pupils more visible on their way in and out of school.  Dodd & Co know how important child safety is, and were delighted to help. Only a couple of weeks later they had arranged for Carlisle firm Liberty Work and Leisure Wear to design, print and supply the garments to the school, just in time for the annual Christmas service.

Headteacher Jackie Watson said “We are really grateful to Dodd & Co for their kind investment in our school’s safety. The road has always posed a worry to us and the high visibility jackets provided have really helped to identify the children out on the roadside and made drivers much more aware of the school and the dangers of driving past at speed.”

Thankfully, now each and every child of Scotby School has access to the high visibility jackets which can be used for many years to come.
