SafeWise have received a generous donation of £100 from the Mayor of Weymouth and Portland Cllr Richard Kosior. The donation will be put to good use in supporting the valuable and memorable safety education that the charity undertakes in Weymouth.

Sarah Easby, Centre Co-ordinator and Education Officer said “I would like to thank the Mayor of Weymouth and Portland for his wonderful support during his time in office.  The kind donation from his charity will be used to support our ongoing educational programme for primary school children. What makes SafeWise unique is that we provide memorable opportunities for people of all ages to learn about staying safe and healthy in their homes, on the road and in their community.”

Vikki Thomas, SafeWise’s Centre Manager in Weymouth said “We are very grateful for the kind donation from the Mayors charity. The money will be put to good use and go towards supporting the work that the charity undertakes locally. As a charity we rely heavily on sponsorship, donations and funding from key partners such as Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service and Dorset Police so that we can positively impact as many students lives as possible.”
