Peterhead Port Authority is supporting a charity which promotes a positive safety culture in communities through educating schoolchildren in a fun way.
A donation has been made to allow children from a local school to visit Absafe in Aberdeen and take part in its engaging health and safety programme.
Kim Woolner, interim chief executive of Absafe, said she was “delighted” with the funding: “A donation such as this means that we can spread the message wider, to families and local communities, encouraging more responsible behaviour and attitudes.
“We educate the children via a series of interactive ‘sets’ which tackle subjects such as fire safety, road safety, water safety, alcohol awareness and internet bullying.
“This allows the children to make more informed decisions to keep themselves, and others, safe. Absafe is dedicated to saving lives and reducing harm by instilling a positive safety culture in our communities.”
Simon Brebner, chief executive of Peterhead Port Authority, said: “The Board is delighted to be supporting this charity which provides interactive education and key life skills to schoolchildren on the fundamentals of personal safety.
“PPA is a Trust Port and we share the Absafe ethos – a dedication to ensuring that future generations benefit from constant care and building a healthy and sustainable platform to allow the business to thrive.”
