A Kempston company has helped raise awareness of a charity that supports those affected by road tragedies.

The Road Victims Trust, also based in Kempston, is dedicated to supporting residents of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire who have been affected by the grief and trauma of a road death.

Fire Safety Services (UK) Ltd, who providing expertise and solutions to businesses nationwide, have been

helping the trust with management and marketing consultancy.

They have donated a sign board space which is part of their sponsorship package at Bedford Blues Goldington Road ground to Road Victims Trust to give more exposure to this valuable organization.

David said: “We are proud to be working with the Road Victims Trust who provide valuable services to local people who have been affected by fatal road collisions. In Bedfordshire we are fortunate to be one of the counties where our residents are able to benefit from emotional and practical support in such

tragic circumstances. As an existing sponsor of Bedford Blues we understand the value of local exposure, therefore by placing a sign at the Club for RVT it will help aid increased awareness and fund raising of this worthy local charity.”

Mark added: “Each year over 80 people are killed on the roads of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. This leads to the Road Victims Trust supporting in excess of 250 people. We are delighted to receive such strong support from Fire Safety Services, who are doing so much to raise the profile of the Trust within Bedfordshire. Many victims of road death are often young, fit men who have so much to live for. The placing of the Trust logo at Bedford Rugby club will, therefore, do much to heighten awareness of the plight of local road victims.”
